The impact assessment accompanying the Government's consultation on feed-in tariffs (FITs) for solar photovoltaics (PV) estimates that new solar PV installations will continue to come forward under the proposed changes to FITs for solar PV. The number of installations is expected to be around 30,000 per year for the rest of the spending review period.
The proposals in the consultation are intended to support a sustainable solar PV industry while minimising the costs to consumers from excessive levels of support. The proposed energy efficiency requirement will also offer new opportunities to businesses, by driving the installation of energy efficiency measures.
The Government do not intend to provide specific financial support to help businesses meet any costs arising from the comprehensive review.
