The Sustainable Energy Partnership, whose members include all the major environmental organisations, today congratulated local MP, Norman Baker, for signing House of Commons Early Day Motion No 801. The Motion calls for permitted development status to be given to micro installation of renewable energy devices by individual householders. This would avoid the hassle and cost of having to obtain planning permission - thus encouraging more people to invest in micro energy systems.
At a time when emissions of CO2 are rising and the government is not on track to meet its targets micro-generation is 'the new kid on the block' - it would help reduce fuel bills, emissions of CO2 and it will also engage consumers in averting climate change - the greatest issue facing the world.
Partnership Organiser Ron Bailey said:
"Climate Change sometimes seems so big an issue that there is little that individual consumers can do: but the installation of micro generation units is a step that many people can take. Giving such installations permitted development status will remove hurdles and cut costs.
"We therefore congratulate Norman Baker MP for being in the forefront of current moves to promote micro- generation to reduce climate change."
