The solar industry is putting forward an emergency rescue plan for British solar which will cost just £1 on bills in 2019 as an alternative to the Government’s proposed cuts to the Feed-in Tariff for the technology.

The Solar Trade Association hopes that its ‘£1 solar rescue plan’ will work for both the solar industry and the Government, allowing a viable solar market to continue while giving the Government the cost control guarantees it requires.

The £1 plan garnered cross-party support from over 30 MPs from all parties yesterday at an action day outside the House of Commons including Sir David Amess MP (Con), Mims Davies MP (Con), Kevin Hollinrake MP (Con), Caroline Flint MP (Lab), Caroline Lucas MP (Green), Callum McCaig MP (SNP) and Tom Brake MP (Lib Dem).

The Government consultation on the changes is set to close tomorrow (23 October), with a final decision expected later this year.
