Energy Live News has the story on government proposals to change FiT payments to new renewable producers.  Its report begins:

The UK Government is proposing to drastically reduce incentives for solar power and has threatened to close the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme.  It has launched a consultation with revised tariffs “based on updated technology cost data” in a bid to cut costs.

FiTs provide householders, businesses and public sector organisations guaranteed payments for the energy they generate.

They also get additional payments for power that is exported to the grid.  Under the new proposals, the amount of money paid for rooftop solar and small wind projects would be limited from next year.
