Government loses court of appeal to reduce solar tariff

The government have just lost their claim to reduce the highly popular feed in tariff from 43p to 20p. So right now you can make money from solar at the original rate potentially for a limited time only.

The government is currently seeking permission to appeal in the supreme court. So there is a great deal of uncertainty over the future of FIT payments and will no doubt continue to seek reductions in fit payments to householders.

However, for those who have not yet installed but want to, there is the opportunity window that many have been hoping for. Plus the expected decline in the market has forced done solar installers to slash panel prices.
