Non-solar FITs could plummet from 2014

August 2012
ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Aug2012, Issue 451, p41
The article focuses on a response issued by the British Department of the Environment and Climate Change (DECC) on July 20, 2012 to a consultation on feed-in tariffs (FIT) for non-solar renewables. A subsidy for each kilowatt hour of electricity is received by owners of renewables under the FIT system. In October 2012, slashing FIT for small wind power schemes was proposed to reduce cost. A system of degression was proposed by DECC in February 2012.
