The consultation on the review of the feed-in tariff for solar PV is due to be announced in parliament on Monday 31 October. However, the significant element for the domestic market has leaked out early: the new rate to be consulted on is 21p per kWh (compared to a current rate of 43.3p). This will come into force on 8 December 2011 (not 1 April 2012 as expected).
Commenting on the proposed changes, Solar Trade Association chairman Howard Johns said: "This would be a complete nightmare if it went ahead."
