Labour Party unveils new solar commitment, PV on 1.75 million homes

The Labour Party has announced plans to install solar on 1.75 million homes as part of an energy shake-up. The plans would see solar installed on 1 million social homes, while interest-free loans, grants and regulatory changes will help enable an additional 750,000 domestic solar installations. The party said the policies could raise nearly 17,000 jobs, while raising as much as £66 million for local authorities in surplus generation. Corbyn said that the party’s self-styled Green Industrial Revolution would benefit homeowners and revive parts of the country through the creation of new industries. “We need to [...]

Low carbon drive ‘cuts household bills

Britain's low carbon energy revolution is actually saving money for households, a report says. Households make a net saving of £11 a month, according to analysis from the Committee on Climate Change. It calculates that subsidies to wind and solar are adding £9 a month to the average bill, but that rules promoting energy efficiency save £20 a month. The finding will be challenged by groups which say the UK spends too much on renewable energy. Savings But the committee, which advises the government, stands by its analysis, and forecasts a continuing trend of downward prices thanks to [...]

Chief warns of bill rises

Alistair Buchanan: "We will be very tight on power station capacity in three to five years time" Consumers are being warned they face higher energy bills as the UK becomes more reliant on energy imports. The warning comes from Ofgem's chief executive, who says falls in the UK's power production capacity are likely to lead to more imports. They predict power station closures could mean a 10% fall in capacity by April this year alone. Mr Buchanan has said the UK needs more gas supplies to fill the shortfall. His warning comes as older power stations [...]
