Solar feed-in tariffs all but scrapped – what does this mean for the solar industry and the fight against global warming?

Invisible Column

Charlotte Shields considers the broader implications of the government’s plans.

The government report released on 27th August promises to deal a heavy blow to the current feed-in tariff system which has been credited for the impressive and growing uptake of domestic solar panel installations. As a result, households’ income generation from solar panels fuelled by government support will fall by 87%, reducing to zero by 2019. All of which starkly contrasts the vision of the energy minister, Amber Rudd, for a ‘solar revolution’.

Of course any report detailing such significant financial cuts is indicative of a certain level of cynicism of the technology. And in a time when investment in renewables is of increasingly pressing importance, these plans appear a very long-legged step in the wrong direction. Reading it as a killer blow to the government’s interest in responsible energy generation and climate change, however, is something I take issue with.
