THE FEED-IN TARIFF LAID BARE

Money to burn? Didn’t think so. Want your energy company to pay you? The amazing thing about solar power is that it’s kinder to the world, and to your pocket. You just need to get Naked and get FIT. Here’s how…

Feed in Tariff was introduced in April 2010 to offer payments for the energy that Solar PV systems generated.  It’s purpose was to drive the industry to bring the cost of Solar PV installations down.  A victim of it’s own success the government had to accelerate the rate at which the subsidy was reduced.

After being available to new installations, the Feed In tariff finished at the end of March 2019.  Having bought down the price of solar PV installations by 75% it was no longer necessary to have a subsidy to make installations viable.  The question remains, why does the well established Oil industry still need subsidy when a new industry like renewables can stand on it’s own two feet without being propped up by the tax payer?
