What is the SNP policy on onshore wind?

The SNP condemn the heavy handed approach of the UK Government in the premature scrappage of onshore wind subsidies. Industry experts warn this move is likely to threaten billions of pounds of investment and hundreds of jobs in the renewables sector which is flourishing in Scotland.

Scotland can continue to be a world leader when it comes to renewable energy – which can boost the economy, create jobs and protect our environment – but this success must not be put at risk by the Tories reckless decisions to cut support for renewables.

At Westminster, SNP MPs will work to ensure low cost green energy schemes get the long term certainty needed to support further development and reductions in cost. SNP MPs will also press the Westminster government to include onshore wind, the lowest cost renewable energy technology, in its industrial strategy.
