We must act now.

FEED-IN TARIFFS
In autumn 2011 the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) issued a consultation on feed-in tariffs (FIT) relating to PV Solar asking questions in relation to both domestic and non-domestic buildings.
The Methodist Church, United Reformed Church, Baptist Union of Great Britain and Quakers submitted a response to this consultation (see www.jointpublicissues.org.uk).
On Thursday 9 February DECC released their response to this consultation. This included the announcements that can be read HERE

They have developed a model that will provide a modest financial return through energy savings and the Feed-in Tariff (FiT), and show churches to be 'doing their bit' to reduce their CO2 footprint. CLICK HERE for more information and a short proforma
