Feed In Tariff disaster

Chapter 1

The original plan for the FIT in the UK was the same as Germany’s: an expected reduction gradually over time as more solar and wind energy systems and other renewable technologies came online. The current government decided soon after taking office to radically reduce the FIT by more than half! This created a rapid drop in new solar installs after the FIT dropped. We are now left with a reward system that does not encourage new domestic solar installations: system which barely allows for a 20 year break-even point for the average size domestic solar installation. This has destroyed our solar industry. Thousands of employees are now out of work and many companies have now closed.
