Government Loses Feed-in Tariff Appeal
The court of appeal has today upheld a High Court ruling that Governments cuts to the Feed-in Tariff were unlawful. 3rd March 2012 will see the start of the 21p rate for Solar PV and not 12 December 2011 dealine as originally stated.
DECC now intend to appeal this ruling, however if this is unsuccessful it will mean that customers who register installations ahead of 3rd March will receive the original 43p rate for 25 years. Any installations registered on or after 3rd March will receive the higher rate until 1st April and thereafter it ill drop to 21p.
