During the last budget, the chancellor Alistair Darling stated that there would be an investigation of feed in tariffs carried out over the summer. At the time of writing its early Autumn and we are still waiting!
Feed in Tariffs define the price that the electricity company will purchase locally generated renewable electricity. In Germany this is about 40p and has stimulated a thriving market in microgenerated power.
In the UK its about 8p and makes it barely worth bothering! Lets get this industry going by having a decent level of payment for clean electricity!
