The government today published its response to the now infamous PV consultation. In summary, it intends to do the following (subject to parliamentary approval):
1) Cut the tariffs to the proposed lower rates (with effect from 12 December 2011 or 3 March 2012, depending on whether it wins or loses its appeal).
2) Introduce a new requirement that the building to which the PV system is electrically connected has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of D or above.
3) Introduce new (even lower) tariffs for generators earning tariffs from more than 25 installations.
