Following reports that the Conservatives will cut wind farm subsidies earlier than planned, Liberal Democrat Energy and Climate Change spokesperson Lord Purvis said:
"Anti-wind power Tories will put up electricity bills, cut green jobs and reduce investment.
"This is bad for the environment, it is bad for the economy and it is bad for our energy supplies. This is the sort of short sighted mistake that the Liberal Democrats consistently stopped the Tories from making.
"The need for us to secure the greatest amount of renewable electricity as part of our energy mix is more important now than ever before.
"This Conservative commitment was wrong to make it in the first place, it is being delivered in the wrong way and the result will be the wrong one for the renewable energy sector and for the future of our planet."
