    Re: wind turbine subsidy

    I think it is FITs on all wind turbines:

    If anyone is thinking of putting a turbine up before then please be aware that C&F Green Energy have stopped servicing work they have already been paid for:

    Re: wind turbine subsidy

    The NFU link says possibly FiT's so it all looks a bit unclear.
    What I have been told is that it is relevant to larger turbines .
    I must admit that when I first read the announcement I assumed it was FiT's as well but was told otherwise later.. All will become clear I guess in time.
    One thing the announcement did refer too was the scheme ending one year early and that must be ROCs as the FiT I believe was due to run until 2021 (?) I think.

    The conservatives aren't keen on wind turbines, that's for sure. Of course they can close any scheme (ROCs/FITs) early if they wish, so you have to weigh up is it worth taking a punt and getting grid connection and planning approval with the chance that it could all be money down the drain if the tariffs are gone. That's your gamble.

    It's always been 5% for Domestic and 20% for Commercial (e.g. farming).
