Late last year, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) lowered the rates for <4kWh PV installations. This move was challenged as unlawful, but the DECC appealed this ruling. Today, that appeal was rejected and the ruling upheld. Solar Power Portal has more:
“After deliberating since January 13, the Court of Appeal has today denied the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) a hearing for its appeal against the High Court’s December ruling on UK solar feed-in tariffs. This means the feed-in tariff will now go back to 43.3p for <4kW systems installed until March 3, 2012.
The three Lords Justices of Appeal announced their reserved judgment this morning following a hearing on January 13.
The court judgement means all those who have installed solar since December 12, and those who intend to install systems before the March 3 cut-off point, will receive the higher feed-in tariff rates for the full 25 years.”
Sasie Ltd is pleased with the High Court’s decision and aims to fulfil customer demand for installations before the March 3rd cut-off date. For further information about our installations or to make an enquiry, please contact our main office at 0115 916 1046 or send an email to email@example.com.
