[Introduction including details about my own air source heat pump install, and mention of the ending of the RHI funding in April 2022.]
After I have installed an air source heat pump, I will pay more money to heat my home, even though I am using less energy, because electricity is more expensive than gas. So this change will hurt me financially over both the short and longer terms.
Do you agree with me that climate emergency is the most important issue the government is now facing?
Do you also agree with me that we urgently need people to switch their heating and home insulation to reduce our dependence on burning gas?
Please do all you can to persuade the Prime Minister to introduce initiatives before COP26 that make it financially viable for families without spare cash to insulate their home and heat them with renewable energy.
Please pass my letter on to the Prime Minister and any government departments you consider relevant.
Thank you very much for your time.
