Quote from Mark's post above:
''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."
1. What do they mean by "that had not applied for accreditation under the RO before this date."
The vast majority of us were accredited under RO by Ofgem before 15 July 2009.
2. They say "would not encourage additional generation."
I think all of us have been, and still are, encouraging people to take up various forms of microgeneration by our example, encouragement and experiences. That's the main reason why I decided to upload all our weather and generating data to the Sunny Portal and have linked it along with comprehensive photographs of the whole process of installing our Proven Turbine on Bigskeff.com
Skeffling have just been lucky enough to win the communities award presented by the Yorkshire and Humber Microgeneration partnership which had the Criteria: A community-led and developed initiative that brings environmental and community benefits as well as helping the wider promotion of microgeneration technologies.
Therefore, I think the criteria referred to in their response INCLUDES us and any other RO accredited installation fitted pre the cut off point. Anything less is short sighted and a betrayal of early adopters.
Planet 'B' presumed nonexistent.
