The article reports on the announcement made by Great Britain's energy and climate change department (DECC) regarding the final rates for electricity feed-in tariffs for microrenewables in February 2010. The government hopes that households and businesses install micro renewables in 2020 as a result of the tariff scheme. Owners of microrenewables like solar PV and wind will be paid for the electricity they produce. This scheme is said to meet Great Britain's energy target by 2020.
