FIT Consultation Response

The Government are proposing to make drastic changes to the feed-in -tariff subsidies to the renewable energy industry. The announcement about these proposed changes has sent shock waves through the renewable energy industry and particularly the solar industry. The impact of the proposed changes if they are not changed as a result of the responses to the consultation will be devastating to the solar industry and community energy.

Sustainable Crediton's response can be read here. Thanks to Molly Scott-Cato Green Party MEP for allowing her response to be used as a basis for our response. Also to the Solar Trade Association and Community Energy England for providing detailed reports to include as evidence of the potential impacts on the trade and community energy.
