A leading solar power developer has called on energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne to include a central role for renewables in the government’s forthcoming Carbon Plan.
MO3 Power has called for the plan to end the uncertainty over Feed-in-Tariffs (FIT) which company chief executive Ken Moss says in recent months which has hindered the development of solar power in the UK.
The strategy will follow comments by Huhne that “getting off the oil hook is made all the more urgent by the crisis in the Middle East”.
Moss said: “Renewables have to be developed efficiently if Britain is to have a safe, green, reliable source of future electricity. Medium and large photovoltaic (PV) developments will have to be included in the new Carbon Plan.
“To limit solar parks to 5MW in size will not encourage investors to make the very considerable financial commitments that are required for the technology to develop.”
