New plans for green energy


Plans to increase solar and wind power have been announced by Climate and Energy Secretary, Ed Miliband.

He told the Commons cleaner power would be generated and incentives given to entice consumers to use it in their homes.

Mr Miliband said smart meters, which give data on energy use, would be rolled out to 26 million homes by 2020.
