Provide a Fair Price for Solar
Solar power is the only renewable energy that doesn’t get a financial support in Ireland, despite being most suited to local community participation and ownership. In fact, if you have solar panels you have to give away any electricity you don’t use yourself for free to the ESB! Meanwhile, wind generators get a guaranteed minimum price.
We are asking the Government for a fair payment for solar electricity so that it is economically viable for schools, GAA clubs, supermarkets, and home-owners to become generators of clean, renewable solar energy, while also reducing their demand for fossil fuels.
We want a rooftop revolution. We want to see Ireland run on sun!
