    Solar Energy and Solar Panel Scheme / Is Uber insured?

    On Tuesday's Backchat - just a week before our Mayday special - we talk about the solar panel scheme. The administration has proposed a 'Feed-in Tariff' to encourage the private sector and the community to consider investing in distributed renewal energy - like solar. The power generated from your rooftop could be sold at a rate higher than the normal electricity tariff rate to the power companies to cover the cost of investments in the panels. Who might use this, and is it practical? Will the rules on illegal structures have to be loosened? If the scheme is to be successful, will it have to be simplified? If tariffs rise, is it fair? Call us with your comments on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, is Uber insured?

    Revitalization of Industrial Buildings / Murray Road Car Park Site

    On Thursday's Backchat we're talking about the use of old industrial buildings, and their potential as venues for live performances, art exhibitions, or other purposes. The matter came to prominence early this month when the authorities raided the Hidden Agenda live music club, which was operating illegally in an industrial building in Kwun Tong. Several overseas performers were also arrested, accused of not having work visas. While the Chief Executive and others have stressed the need to ensure public safety, there are also calls for a relaxation in the laws to allow greater use of otherwise empty spaces. And there's the controversy - highlighted by the Ombudsman - over industrial canteens housed in such buildings also serving outside customers. So what do you think? Do existing rules need an overhaul? How carefully do we need to proceed when safety is clearly a factor? After 9.20: the Murray Road Car Park site in Central is sold for a record sum.  (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925)
