Hilarious ‘Keep Fits’ video seeks to save clean energy subsidies from Tory cuts

Whilst a potential nuclear deal with China has put energy back on the agenda of British politics, campaigners for cleaner forms of energy are protesting changes to existing policy by making bizarre YouTube clips.

Backed by the climate group 10:10, KeepFITS is a bid to prop up the feed-in tariffs subsidy that makes small projects involving solar, wind and other forms of clean energy more achievable.

Currently the Tory government is considering cutting the subsidy or abolishing it, and 10:10 argues that solar energy is widely popular among the British public and that it could be sustainable without the subsidy within several years.

Further information on the campaign can be found in the infographic below, or on the campaign website. Unfortunately the consultation on the government’s proposals ends at 11:45 on Friday, so you had better move fast.
