Defend Affordable Solar Energy in Europe

    1. Sponsored by

      Alliance for Affordable Solar Energy (AFASE)

The EU has proposed a tax on affordable imported solar panels that will make solar energy more expensive than coal or nuclear, meaning clean solar won’t replace dirty energy.

Climate change is our generation's biggest challenges and affordable solar energy is an important part of combating climate change. Karel De Gucht (EU Commissioner for Trade) can prevent this solar panel import tax that he is threatening to impose.

      I hate waste, and we are wasting oil & fossil fuels, for the benefit of my Grandchildren and the rest of their generation we, must depend upon solar, wind and tidal energy to provide all future energy supply that we use.

      I am planning to go 'off grid' I feel that sustainable living is the right of the individual. The state has no right to impose taxes on such goods.
