It has been found through a recent report that the Government had suggested the Supreme Court to allow cuts on solar subsidies, an appeal which has now been turned down by the court.
The report has revealed that the Feed-in Tariffs are the basis for renewable plans in the areas where solar radiation levels are highest in the South West. The tariff rewards those who are involved in electricity production by utilizing the Sun power.
It is being said that the case of the appeal by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) was ruled by the High Court on December 21, which declared that introducing cuts in tariffs for any solar schemes accomplished after December 12, 2011 was illicit. The court says that ministers must admit they were carrying out an unlawful act.
The decision of the High Court has also assured the renewable energy market that fair cuts in any future schemes could not be announced by the Government. "Hopefully this decision will finally bring a bit of stability and confidence to the solar industry in the region", said Nigel Jenkins, who is the managing director of Modbury-based Eco NRG.
