We’re feeling hopeful this can happen…
We’re feeling just a little bit optimistic, following Ed Milliband’s speech yesterday. Professionally, as a small renewable energy business, survival hasn’t been easy under the current ‘greenest Government ever’. Personally, as consumers of energy in our homes, even with the renewable energy sources we have both installed, we feel the effects of price hikes in electricity and gas. Furthermore, we have yet to see the Green Deal really take off.
So, like many, we’re hopeful that if a new administration gets in in 2015, the green agenda – of urgently and drastically reducing our carbon outputs – might be given the serious attention that it deserves.
