SE24 mentioned in Parliament

Please see PQ asked in Parliament this morning by Helen Hayes MP in which she refers to SE24 by way of highlighting the impact of recent government proposals on community energy groups like ours.

Her question: “I met this week with Sustainable Energy 24, a community benefit society established to deliver solar panels on public and community buildings in my constituency. They told me in relation to the cut in the Feed-in-Tariff and the ending of pre-accreditation that ‘it is hard to see how any community energy group can continue on this basis’.  Can the secretary of state tell me why the impact on community energy companies was not considered ahead of the consultation and provide me with reassurances that the consultation response will address this very important issue?”


 You can watch her ask it, using this link The minister’s reply is a bit truncated in the link but your can see it in full on Parliament Live.
We’ll be liaising with Helen when we respond to the latest DECC consultation on proposals to drastically cut FIT rates.
