DECC announcement does not affect Farm Wind
Government’s changes to onshore wind subsidy:
Wind was in the news again last night, as always the media haven’t been clear to differentiate between farm scale wind projects under 1.5MW which utilise the FiTs scheme and the onshore wind farms that receive ROC’s
The announced changes are to “wind farms” receiving ROC’s and not FiTs which is being reviewed as planned later this summer.
The FiTs scheme is key to the success of farm scale wind and community projects which have been highlighted as an important part of the governments strategy to allow local communities to benefit from wind.
