Early adopters and the feed-in tariff: an update

Posted by Cathy Debenham on 12 July 2010 at 10:05 am

The Conservative party promised, prior to the election, that early adopters of microgeneration will get the feed-in tariffs. Since the election the silence on the subject has been deafening.

Until now. An early adopter has just sent me this letter from DECC:

"As set out in the Coalition Programme for Government, this Government has committed to establishing a full system of Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) in electricity.  As part of this, DECC is currently looking at features of the FITs scheme to see what changes we may need to make; always bearing in mind, of course, the difficult fiscal position in which we now all operate.

"We hope to announce decisions on FITs, including the eligibility of early adopters of small-scale, low-carbon electricity technologies for support under the scheme, as soon as possible.

"I hope this is helpful."

It's not really very helpful, but at least they haven't ruled it out completely. So we're back to wait and see...
