Feed in tarrifs

If they do this the same way as it has been done in Germany. Then the
tariffs are very generous and the best rate is given to those who get there first.

In Germany I believe the rate is guaranteed for a long period say 20 years and the sooner you sign up the better the rate you get.

Just think if it were 50 or 70p say per kwh, then it would really make financial as well as environmental sense to own a micro renewable.

Some of the Orkney guys would make a bomb!

I better slow down as I am getting excited.

Given that commercial wind turbines are already hugely profitable, I don't see what this would achieve. Those who have suitable sites would just make a bigger killing, but it would do nothing to address the planning and site suitability issues.

An incentive on reliable renewable energy would make more sense. Something that can fill in when there's no wind.

It imagine it would be for domestic renewable devices including solar PV , bio mass wind etc.

There are so few suitable sites in the UK for wind that this would be a really super thing to encourage the type of change that has occurred in Germany. Where from their scheme they not have significant proportion of there electricity produced by domestic PV.
