Oliver Heath backs 10p call to create 30,000 jobs

Green collar workers have marched on the Department for Energy and Climate Change to call for 10p to be added to cash back to create thousands of jobs in the solar industry.

The 'Small Change. Big Difference' campaign delivered a letter to the secretary of state at DECC, Ed Miliband, calling for a revision to the Clean Energy Cash Back Scheme adding 10p to the tariff before it is finalised in December.

The campaign believes 10p added to the scheme would help create 400,000 solar powered buildings, cut our CO2 emissions and create 30,000 jobs by 2014.

To promote the cause eco designer and TV presenter, Oliver heath, joined green business leaders helping two giant 10 pence pieces make their way to DECC on Tuesday (November 24)
