Huhne launches first review of micro-generation incentives
On Monday 7 February energy secretary Chris Huhne launched a comprehensive review of the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) micro-generation incentive scheme following claims that large-scale solar farms could "soak-up money" intended to help homes, communities and small businesses.
The FiT scheme was introduced in April 2010 and more than 21,000 installations have registered to date, with a combined capacity of 76.7MW. But Huhne said there is a risk under the current structure of an increasing number of large-scale solar farms which "could push FiTs costs off track". The review will consider all aspects of the scheme including: tariff levels; degression rates and methods; eligible technologies and interaction with other policies.
