Government’s FiT cuts illegal

26th January 2012

The Court of Appeal has today refused the Government’s appeal against the High Court ruling that premature cuts to FiTs for solar PV were illegal. In a unanimous decision the three judges confirmed that the Government’s attempt to cut solar Feed-in tariffs from 12 December was unlawful.

The Department for Energy and Climate Change confirmed that Feed-in tariff rates would not be the reduced rates announced before Christmas, but those originally laid out in legislation as 43.3p per kWh generated for domestic installations until 3rd March 2012.
