England has over 16,000 Anglican churches plus another 20,000 from other demominations. The roofs of these churches provide excellent locations for solar panels and the feed-in tariff previously made viable the heavy costs involved in installation. The reduction in the tariff has led to many abandoned projects. With 'green' targets to meet, was this a wise move on the part of the Government?
