Renewable energy course demand could be boosted by accountant's comments

A Bristol accountant may prompt tradesmen to reconsider renewable energy courses, as he has pointed out that the incentive scheme for green power production has not been cut completely.

Speaking to Bristol 24-7, South West head of grants and renewable energy Ewan McClymont stressed that projects below 50 kW will not be affected and businesses will still be able to lower their utility costs by installing microgeneration equipment.

Technicians pondering whether to sign up for renewable energy courses may have been put off by the news that Chris Huhne may stop investment companies from building so-called solar farms.

But Mr McClymont told the news provider: "While [he] may be proposing a significant reduction in the tariff levels for all new solar PV installations above 50 kW in size, he is not totally shutting down the benefits."

After the announcement was made last month, climate change minister Greg Barker explained that the changes were being brought in to stop large-scale projects soaking up all the money.
