• Thousands of jobs at risk over proposed slash to Feed in Tariff

    NICEIC and ELECSA fear thousands of jobs could be at risk following government plans to slash the Feed in Tariff (FiT) rates for solar PV by up to 87%.

    The cuts, due to be implemented in January 2016, would see FiT payments for new solar panels drop to less than 2p per unit of electricity. This means homeowners would receive up to, on average, £190 less in subsidy payments annually, compared to current FiT rates.

  • FiT cuts could threaten the stability of up to 70% of solar PV companies warns Napit

    As the latest Feed-in Tariff Consultation ends, the Napit Trade Association are calling for the government to urgently rethink their proposals, warning that planned cuts will cripple one of the fastest growing industries in the UK.
