London, 23 Mar,2012 Today the Supreme Court has refused the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) permission to appeal Court of Appeal's judgement regarding feed-in tariffs for solar photovoltaic technology. This means that all systems installed between December 12, 2011 and March 3, 2012 will receive the higher feed-in tariff rates for 25 years.
Secretary of State, Edward Davey issued below statement:“We are disappointed by the decision of the Supreme Court not to grant permission to hear this case. But the Court’s decision draws a line under the case. We will now focus all our efforts on ensuring the future stability and cost effectiveness of solar and other microgeneration technologies for the many, not the few.”
