Information from Greenpeace reveals that the government is about to attack solar power by hitting schools and businesses that invest in solar power with a huge tax hike. This comes one year after the Paris climate deal was agreed by world leaders and Greenpeace have launched a petition urging ministers to rethink government plans for such severe tax hikes on solar.
‘Stop Hinkley’ spokesperson, Roy Pumfrey, states ‘The Government knows that solar and wind will be cheaper by the time Hinkley is generating. It is blindingly obvious that solar and wind will win through in the end, but if the Government doesn’t come to its senses soon electricity consumers will be paying EdF through their noses for nuclear electricity we don’t need.
