1 May 2012

Caroline FlintCaroline Flint MP, Labour’s Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, has warned that the UK is set to miss its target for solar power by more than 160 years, following the Government’s cuts to the Feed-in Tariff for solar power.
Caroline Flint MP said:

"For months Labour has been warning that the Government’s cuts to solar power would destroy thousands of jobs, cut off a green hi-tech British industry and stop families controlling soaring energy bills. These shocking figures prove that because of the Government’s cuts, it will take a staggering 169 years for us to reach our targets for solar power."
