Red tape cut for technicians with electrical course training

The government's decision to remove red tape for certain energy suppliers could mean less hoops to jump through for some tradesmen with electrical course qualifications.

On Monday (June 13th), the Department of Energy and Climate Change revealed that firms with 250,000 customers or fewer will not need to meet the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target or the Community Energy Saving Programme requirements.

Charles Hendry, energy and climate change minister, suggested this should prevent disproportionate costs being handed down by the government.

He said: "Reducing red tape for smaller suppliers will help them grow and encourage new players into the market. Increased competition can help bring down prices and encourage innovation, benefitting energy customers."

The policy will apply to gas and electricity suppliers and replaces a regulation that would have involved companies with 50,000 customers complying with the same rules as the 'big six'.

Last week, the government announced the launch of a new feed-in tariff for large-scale solar power generation and anaerobic digestion projects.
