UK’s solar industry calls for government to deliver net zero Budget

The Solar Trade Association says government must unlock the potential of solar energy in the UK and ’empower the transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions’

The UK's solar industry has called for the government to deliver a net zero Budget.

The Solar Trade Association (STA) says the UK needs a Budget that unlocks the potential of solar energy in the UK and "empowers the transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions".

It suggests policies should include an exemption for solar from business rates, fairer tax treatment, zero-interest loans for green home improvements and a commitment to procure 100% renewable energy for the civic estate.
