The Labour Party today launched its manifesto, cementing it’s plans to expand renewables and nationalise the energy sector.
The Liberal Democrats party has released its manifesto for the upcoming general election, promising to ramp up support for renewables.
The Green Party has launched its manifesto, including a pledge to invest £12 billion a year into renewables and to fit one million solar panels on homes per year.
The Labour Party has pledged to install solar power hubs on 2,000 buildings around the country if elected in December.
The Solar Trade Association (STA) is calling on the next government to “hit the ground running” as it stresses the need for the “urgent delivery” of three key policies.
Solar has continued to be the most popular renewable technology with the public as of September 2019, a factor which must be considered by any prospective government the industry has said.
As the UK prepares for yet another election, following the dissolution of parliament in the early hours yesterday, pledges for increased solar power are notable in almost all the major party's campaigns.
