So, this bird:
Leonie Greene is head of external affairs at the Renewable Energy Association and the Solar Trade Association
Comes along and says that the government are very naughty boys and girls for changing the feed in tariffs for solar.
In the comments:
As a matter of fact I am feeling a pang of regret at piling in. I think small scale solar could develop to fill a useful role. However given that \” Prices dropped around 25% last year alone\”, why spend the taxpayers\’ money – if the trend to lower prices as technology improves continues, we won\’t need to, and if the trend doesn\’t continue, we shouldn\’t.
\”Solar energy has to be allowed to compete directly with fossil fuels and new nuclear\”
It does, and it\’s more expensive, that\’s why it doesn\’t get used, when it can compete, then it will get used. That\’s the point! No amount of consiparcy threorising will change that – sorry!
