To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change if he will estimate the cost to energy consumers of the feed-in tariff scheme in 2020 if (a) no changes were made to the scheme announced in February 2010 and (b) the proposed changes to tariff levels are implemented.

Analysis undertaken for the Impact Assessment accompanying the Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) fast track review consultation estimated that the cost to energy consumers of the FITs scheme in 2020 could be £700 million to £800 million higher under unchanged tariffs compared to costs under the proposed fast track tariffs for large solar PV and farm-scale AD (in 2011 prices, discounted).
