The MP for Selly Oak in Birmingham has joined a new campaign to help more people access cheap energy through the expanded use of solar power.
The Birmingham Post reports that Lynne Jones has joined the We Support Solar campaign which will focus on solar photo voltaic (PV) power and the establishment of a feed-in tariff.
Under the proposed scheme, people with solar PV technology will be able to sell the energy they generate for up to four times the cash value that they pay their energy supplier.
Ms Jones told the paper: "The government's decision to introduce a feed-in tariff for renewable electricity technologies gives us an opportunity to maximise UK jobs, UK innovation and UK investment in solar PV."
Solar PV panels only need daylight to generate electricity and can be installed subtly on rooftops. Widespread installations would provide better access to cheap energy, reduce emissions and also stimulate local economies through the creation of jobs.
The government responded to price rises from energy suppliers last year by pledging its dedication to nationwide energy efficiency.
