Greenpeace reports that recent government cuts to the solar industry have already triggered an estimated 12,000 job losses. But now it’s been revealed the government could allow a huge new tax hike to be inflicted on the industry, one that could leave businesses and schools that install solar panels with a tax bill that's up to 8 times higher.

Such a huge tax rise would prove catastrophic for swathes of UK solar firms. That’s why it’s vital we speak up now, before the changes are approved in early 2017.

Over 200,000 have already signed the petition. Will you join them?
