The Government consultation on the ending of the Feed-in Tariff scheme has just finished. While it was known that closure of the FiT scheme was probably coming in 2019 it was a surprise to find that there is also a proposal to end export tariffs that are a simple mechanism by which home owners with PV systems and other generators are paid for the electricity they export to the grid.
Moor Sustainable considers ending of the FiT generation tariff and the export tariff would be a disaster for community energy groups and for schools and householders who want to do their bit to help in the fight against climate change. The ending of the export tariff would be grossly unfair, effectively allowing the big electricity companies to steal electricity from home owners.

If you are considering your own PV system or other renewable electricity technology we suggest you read the important update on our page Financial support for energy saving and generation.
