Petition Text

I want the Government to introduce a fair payment for Solar Electricity.

Why This? Why Now?

Please sign this petition to urge the Government not to exclude small-scale rooftop solar from new plans to support renewable electricity.

As solar panel tecnolology improves and costs fall we want to see Ireland unlock its solar power potential.

As a first step we’re demanding the Government guarantee a fair payment for solar electricity, so people get paid for the excess energy they generate with panels on the roofs of their homes, farm buildings, schools, clubs and community halls. 

Leo Varadkar signed this petition at Electric Picnic last year. But Minister Naughten's new draft plan for renewable electricity doesn't include support for small-scale rooftop solar - it's all about big business.

We will submit this petition - calling for fair treatment for small-scale solar -  to the public consultation on Minster Naughten's plans.
