The UK Government has embarked on a process of reducing the support given to the solar power industry. This has seen a drastic decrease in the number of solar sites being established compared to years under the old subsidy scheme.
This should worry everyone who wants to see the UK leading the way in tackling climate change. If we do not reduce our dependency on high-carbon fuels and cut our CO2 emissions we will be leaving the planet in a worse state for the next generation.
Solar is a valuable industry and brings with it new highly skilled manufacturing jobs as well. For these two reasons alone the UK Government should rethink their current plans and support solar power.
