DECC defends outcome of FiT review against critics
The Government confirmed on Thursday 9 June the outcome of its fast-track review on feed-in tariffs (FiT) levels of support for large-scale solar (above 50kW) and farm-scale anaerobic digestion (up to 500kW) installations. A reduction in tariffs for the largest solar projects of up to 72% has been announced. But the Renewable Energy Association (REA) criticised the decision, saying the handling of the issue had been "poor" and the logical thing to do would have been introduce a 25% reduction across the whole scheme irrespective of size. At the same time PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) said the review was unwelcome for investor confidence but was conducted transparently and added that "the FiT now runs the risk of being a benefit for the wealthy only".
