Denis, don't block the Sun!
DRAFT MODE - No emails will be sent to targets.
An email to Denis Naughten's consultation of renewables urging him not to exclude rooftop solar from the new renewable electricity support scheme.
Minister Denis Naughten says he supports small-scale rooftop solar power but his draft plan to support renewables specifically *doesn't* include small-scale solar.
There is now a public consultation on this plan. Send the email below to make a very short submission to the consultation calling for the inclusion of a fair payment for rooftop solar power from the likes of homes, schools, sports clubs and farm buildings.
We're also demanding the Government set an adequate target for renewable electricity for 2030. The Government's own target for 2050 is for 80-95% renewnable power. And we're getting there on our EU target for 2020 of 40%. But weirdly the Government's plan is to have 40% for the target for 2030 as well.
If you're at 40 in 2020 and you have to get 80+ in 2050 it's absurd to say you don't plan to go any higher than 40 by 2030! Eirgird's baseline prediciton for 2030 is 47%. We think the target should be at least 55%.
