Legal battle launched over solar subsidy cuts

Government plans to cut financial incentives for solar electricity have created "huge economic uncertainty" and are "manifestly unlawful", the High Court was told.

The accusations were made by environmental pressure group Friends of the Earth (FoE) and two solar companies, Solarcentury and HomeSun, as they jointly launched an application for a judicial review.

They say Energy Secretary Chris Huhne is proposing "retrospectively" to cut feed-in tariff subsidies (FITs), payments made to households and communities that generate green electricity through solar panels, on any installations completed after 12 December this year

watch this space. we dont think the govt line will change as the FIT rate was probably unsustainable. but stranger things have happened.
