Call to encourage greater use of solar energy in Scotland

A leading political figure has called for greater deployment of solar energy in Scotland. Energy minister Fergus Ewing said more work needed to be done to help homes and businesses generate their own supply of electricity. The call comes after the Department of Energy and Climate and Change (DECC) made moves to reduce the Feed-in –Tariff and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) subsidies in the UK and set proposals to reduce the renewables obligation support.
