Solar subsidy = Fuel Poverty and Job Losses
The quicker these feed-in tariffs go the better. Who in their right mind thinks that making power more expensive is good for the economy?
These tariffs are added to our electricity bills and it's us who've never been consulted as to whether we'd like to give our hard-earned to solar companies or our neighbours.
Each household is being forced to pay more and more for this crackpot scheme.
If you're poor and live in a council flat on a card meter you can't take advantage of solar, but you can bet that your fuel is getting more expensive due to the family down the road with a nice big detached house ,covered in panels, getting paid more for the power they add to the grid than that from a powerstation.
It was recently calculated in Spain that for every job created by solar/wind subsidies cost 2.5 in the real economy, a report earlier in the UK showed that we could beat that with 3.7 jobs lost for every green job created.
So effectively Friends of the Earth are for fuel poverty and unemployment.
