AND FINALLY: Feel the Power of (renewable) Love on Valentine’s Day

Friends of the Earth ScotlandThis Valentine’s Day you can fall in love with the power of community energy – and save the feed-in tariff at the same time!

Anne Schiffer, Community Power campaigner, explained: “The European Commission is holding a public consultation on State Aid which closes on February 14.

“The feed-in tariff has been the most successful mechanism for putting ordinary people at the heart of our energy system by enabling them to participate in the energy market.

“But the proposed guidelines pose a serious threat to the feed-in tariff and the democratisation of our energy system by creating barriers that community organisations just cannot compete with.”

So Friends of the Earth Scotland is inviting people to take part in a Thunderclap event on Twitter to show support for saving the feed in tariff on St. Valentine’s Day.
