Motion text

That this House supports solar power and welcomes the launch of the Government's renewable energy tariff scheme for solar photovoltaics (PV) and other small-scale renewable electricity technologies; notes that the introduction of renewable energy tariffs enjoyed strong cross-party support and that the scheme is already delivering an increase in domestic PV installations and thousands of new skilled green jobs; welcomes the growth in uptake of PV since April 2010 and Government projections of a near 100 fold increase in PV installations by 2020; further notes that the cost of PV in the UK is set to more than halve in a decade; believes that the feed-in tariff scheme will provide much needed stability for the expansions of UK renewables businesses up to the first planned review of the tariffs levels in 2013; and urges Ministers to ensure that the Comprehensive Spending Review supports the potential of PV and other small-scale renewable technologies to make a significant contribution to the UK's renewables targets.
