Short sighted changes to solar subsidies

26 August 2015

The solar industry has reacted furiously to recent governmental proposals which will heap uncertainty onto developers looking to proceed with solar projects, both roof- and ground-mount.   

Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP:

Solar PV ArrayThis proposed cut to support for solar is utterly short sighted. While the government continues to subsidise fossil fuels and nuclear it's undermining investor confidence in clean, renewable energy generation.

This cut would further undermine Britain's commitment to meeting our climate change targets and deepen our addiction to dirty fossil fuels.


The Department of Energy and Climate Change consultation on removing pre-registration and pre-accreditation for the Solar PV Feed-in tariff closed on 19th August 2015 and we await the impending result with trepidation.
