Early adopters continue to call for equal feed-in tariffs

While the feed-in tariff is being hailed as a great success, and solar PV installations are sky rocketing, the voice of early adopters has disappeared from the media. However, a group of microgeneration pioneers who are receiving just 9p per kWh generation tariff (compared to the 43.1p received by the owner of a new domestic installation) continue their fight for a fair deal.
Led by Darren Curtis and Paul Truelove the group had its first meeting in Huddersfield last November and is now exploring ways to influence the Coalition to change its policy on the rates for early adopters. This issue may well have resonance for the shaping of the renewable heat incentive. Under the initial proposals installers identified that there was a danger of early adopters scrapping perfectly good systems and installing a new one, just to get the incentive.Cathy Debenham
