MUA chairman to face renewable energy query

The use of renewable energy on the Isle of Man will be discussed when the House of Keys sits next week.

Douglas North MHK David Ashford wants to know how much electricity is generated from renewable sources by Manx Utilities.

He's also seeking details about the amount of power that comes from the Energy from Waste Plant.

Manx Utilities chairman Alex Allinson will also be asked to reveal whether the Island is using enough renwable energy to meet the Government's Renewable Energy Target, which aimed to have 15% of the Island's electric coming from renewable sources by 2015.
