Re: Cash Rewards for Low Carbon Electricity and Heating

I agree totally with your concern regarding the new FITS tariff to be introduced in April. I think any rational person would think it unfair that all current pre July 2009 installations would be put at a disadvantage in this scheme.

Referring to the non eligibility of current systems the government response was ''Many consultees disagreed with this. However, we continue to believe that allowing all existing installations access to FITs would not only increase the overall costs of the scheme but would not encourage additional generation. We therefore confirm that we will not be allowing FITs for microgeneration installations completed before 15 July 2009 that had not applied for accreditation under the RO before this date."

Surely it's not the cost of the scheme that's at issue but the fairness of it.

Is any householder going to seriously consider installing a second generator etc at considerable expense just to take advantage of this scheme. Also the EST would not under current rules offer a second grant on a similar technology.

Existing installations have undoubtedly helped to foster interest in renewable technologies and therefore can be said to have encouraged additonal generation.

I am due to install a Eoltec 6kw turbine shortly so will be one of the 'lucky' ones but will be disadvantaged under the RHI ( Renewable Heat Incentive ) as my GSHP is 6 years old.

I intend to raise the issue of current installations with my local MP/MSP.
