The BPVA has issued its response to today’s DECC announcement

The BPVA has issued it’s response to today’s DECC announcement and unlike most commentators, it is the voice of reason.

We particularly like this bit..

I think what is extremely important now that unlike the 2011 cut, the industry must not talk itself down as this will be more damaging that the cuts. We must put emotions into one side and look at this in the context of LCF budget. It almost feels like the industry has been asked “The House is on fire and we must decide which part of it we want to save”? We are concerned about today’s announcement and we will continue to work closely with our members on the response to the announced consultations, to ensure that the correct framework is put in place to guarantee a sustainable solar industry. Any future policies must safeguard consumer and  investor confidence which is key to maintaining  the growth of the UK solar industry.”

We hope that the BPVA’s measured response will not be drowned out by some of the shriller voices making themselves heard on the airwaves this morning..
