Britain – Feed In Tarifs Cuts Cause Government To Scrap Its Own Solar Power Project

Britain's Vichy Government forced to cancel its own flagship solar project

Dave and his Greenest Government ever, have scored a truly spectacular own goal with the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s proposed cuts to the feed in tarrif tax payer subsidy that have forced the Vichy Government to cancel its own flag ship Solar Power project.

Being a government project and that the government has no money of its own, it only has tax payers money, the Government was going to waste our money on this project and then use still more of our money from another source, the feed in tariff to make the whole clusterfuck viable.

All the while Dave and Attila the Huhnatic proclaiming loudly what a Green success this was and how cheap the energy produced and forgetting to mention the feed in tarrif.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change have decided to cut subsidies between 40% – 70% for 50kW and bigger sites.

Businessgreen are not at all happy at this decision as the opportunity to milk the taxpayer for this subsidised farce is slipping away from them:

The government has cancelled its own flagship solar energy project because the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s (DECC) proposed cuts to solar feed-in tariff incentives will make the scheme unviable.

That is the charge from “stakeholders” who contributed to a Whitehall project to assess the potential for fitting solar panels across the government estate, following a workshop on the topic at the Cabinet Office last November.

BusinessGreen has learned that the project was quietly cancelled last month, just a week after the government launched a controversial review of feed-in tariffs for solar installations with over 50kW that proposes deep cuts to the incentives of between 40 and 70 per cent.

The “stakeholders” intertesting obfuscation of terms there, implying that real money had been invested by certain Green industrial conglomerates, not the time and money that any company puts in to producing a bid for a Government contract, that it hopes to win. Some how as this is a sacred renewables project it is inconceivable to them that the project could not go ahead at any cost and with no questions.

All stakeholders were told that it has been decided not to proceed with the Solar PV Project because of the impending changes to the FiTs for solar PV and therefore it wouldn’t be prudent to continue,” said Katie Moore, co-founder of the Solar Club, a community whose members are planning to invest in a solar project.

The proposed feed-in tariff cuts have been roundly criticised by many within the solar industry

The solar industry are pissed off because the amount of tax payers money they were hoping to get their grubby little paws on is shrinking faster than the IPCC’s Himalayan Glaciers.

In response to questions about the scrapping of the solar project the Cabinet Office referred BusinessGreen to the Buying Solutions procurement body, where a spokeswoman confirmed that the project had been cancelled. However, she declined to give a reason as to why the initiative had been ditched.
