O’Dowd welcomes progress on his Small Scale Energy Bill

Sinn Féin MLA John O’Dowd has welcomed progress on his Small Scale Energy Bill at today’s Committee Meeting. The legislation will support individuals to generate their own renewable energy which can then be sold back to the grid. 

The Upper Bann MLA said:

“I am delighted that my Small Scale Green Energy Bill has been progressed at today’s economy committee.

“This legislation will be a real win in the fight against climate change and delivering a just transition. 

“Energy production is a very live issue at present as the rising costs of fossil fuels are hitting workers and families hard.

“My bill will give ordinary people and community groups the ability to generate their own renewable electricity, which can then be sold back to the grid, this will help energy users to become energy suppliers and will help us move away from fossil fuels.

“I look forward to the Committee scrutinising my Bill over the coming weeks and hopefully the Bill passing all legislative stages so that we can deliver real benefits to workers and families.”
