Fair play for green pioneers

The Department of Energy and Climate Change intends to reward generators of renewable energy – Solar, Wind, Hydro etc – with a guaranteed price for the electricity they produce. Called ‘Feed In Tariff’, this will come into effect in
April 2010.

However the regulations will be such that that owners of self-built renewable energy systems will be excluded from these rewards even though these are the very people who pioneered home produced electricity. To assure a fair reward for these green pioneers, please sign the petition to 10 Downing St, which you can find at:

This 20-foot waterwheel generates 5.5kw:

– enough electricity to power two houses 24 hours a day. Under the proposed regulations it will be ineligible for the Feed In Tariff.
