« BackTransition Kerry publish list of questions for election candidates

Transition Kerry, a group that promotes sustainable energy initiatives in the county, has released a number of questions for the public to pose to election candidates.

Election_podQuestions include ‘why is the grant scheme for S-E-A-I still supporting fossil fuel boilers instead of renewable wood pellet boilers’, and ‘what steps will successful candidates take to end fuel poverty for over 26,000 people in Kerry in the coming years’.

The group claim that we import more than 90% of our fuel, which makes Ireland the most vulnerable country in Europe in terms of energy needs.
