  • The UK Government last week confirmed new funding tariffs for large-scale Solar PV projects under its green electricity initiative, the Feed-In Tariff (“FiT”) scheme. From the 1 August 2011, new entrants for solar projects into the FiT scheme will receive amended tariffs amounting to up to a 70% cut to current levels of funding. Schemes under 50kW are unaffected by the changes.
