The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has announced a fast-track consulation on the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) subsidy for solar pv installations. For domestic solar installations (less than 4 kWp) a reduction from 43p to 21p is being proposed. This would reduce the return on investment from 8-10% to 4-5% and the pay-back period from 16 years to 8 years. Householders will also be asked to demonstrate a minimum level of energy efficiency, e.g. a C rating on an Energy Performance Certificate though the details of this are still under consideration.
