Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) News
With the end of the current government Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) scheme looming in March 2019 questions have arisen about what will follow. The scheme has undoubtedly been a great incentive for domestic users to get on board with solar power. With concern building about climate change, industry bodies such as the Solar Trade Association (of which TLGEC is a member) have been campaigning to ensure a fair export payment for small solar generators after April 2019.
We received the good news this week that the Energy Minister Claire Perry has now addressed previously unanswered questions. Responding to Kevin Hollinrake MP, she said “I do completely agree that solar power should not be provided to the grid for free and that’s why I’ll shortly be announcing the next steps for small scale renewables.”
She added in answer to a question from Richard Graham MP: “It would be wrong to have power provided to the grid for free.”
