With the consultation ending this Friday, time is ticking and Dan from Hoxton Community Energy in East London is making the most of it. Last week he hatched a crazy plan to Keep Fits by keeping fit - hand delivering letters to Energy and Climate Change Secretary Amber Rudd letting her know what people think of the proposed cuts.
Things kicked off yesterday with a three mile jog from Arcola Theatre in Dalston to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc). Not only do Arcola have solar PV panels on their roof - made possible by the feed-in tariff - they've got solar thermal, a DC micro grid and an in-house lab making hydrogen fuel cells. Cutting edge theatre alongside cutting edge tech - we love it. All this energy brilliance is designed to inspire others but they're worried that the Fit changes will stop people being able to follow in their footsteps.
Dan made sure their message got to Decc and Amber Rudd safely.
Fancy running alongside Dan or giving him a letter to deliver? Here's his schedule..
Tuesday 20th - Brixton to Decc with messages from Repowering London, Brixton Energy 1, 2 & 3 and South East London Community Energy.
Wednesday 21st - Hoxton to Decc with a message from Hoxton Community Energy.
Thursday 22nd - School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) to Decc with message from Solar SOAS
Friday 23rd - Tate Modern to Decc with a message from Solar Century.
