Dear Mr Truelove
Many thanks for your email which was passed to me by David Cameron.
I understand the frustration at the system which has been put in place for those of you who were early users of micro-generation. When we forced the Government to reluctantly accept the principle of the feed-in tariff in the Energy Bill 2008, we had anticipated that a fair and swift consultation would encourage the uptake of micro-generation on a large scale. We are therefore disappointed that the feed-in tariff is still to come into force.
It is also clearly unfair to you that you will remain on the current funding mechanism. You will be pleased therefore to hear that we have decided that if a Conservative Government is elected, we would ensure that micro-generation equipment installed before feed-in tariffs come into effect will nevertheless be entitled to the same terms as new installations.
I hope that this is good news for you, and once again thank you for taking the time to write.

Sounds encouraging, hope it's true and they stay with it.
