People looking to switch energy provider to one that can provide a green option may be interested in the outcome of a legal challenge to cuts in solar subsidies.
Yesterday (December 20th), the High Court began hearing arguments brought by Friends of the Earth, Solarcentury and HomeSun against cuts to the Feed-in Tariff scheme implemented by the government.
This has seen payments for electricity generated through new photovoltaic panel installations slashed from 43p/kWh to 21p/kWh as of December 12th.
Executive director of Friends of the Earth Andy Atkins said the "rushed" plans have threatened thousands of jobs and "pulled the plug" on a large number of renewable energy schemes.
"The government must think again and take steps to safeguard UK solar jobs and help cash-strapped families and businesses to free themselves from expensive fossil fuels," he continued.
