Welcoming the UK Government's announcement that millions more homes will be powered by wind and solar energy, following the decision to include these technologies in the next round of the Contracts for Difference scheme in 2021, ScottishPower CEO Keith Anderson said:
“Since announcing its 2050 Net Zero target last year, this is one of the first clear signs that the Government really means business.
“Onshore wind is a crucial tool in tackling climate change – it's cheap, it's clean and it's quick to build.
“As a responsible developer, we work hard to secure the support of local communities. We've built a strong pipeline of onshore and solar projects and today's announcement is a great boost for renewed investment in green infrastructure and jobs.”
