End of Solar feed in tariff
As a comparison the US gives a flat 30% capital cost tax credit against the cost of solar panels under a scheme called the Solar Investment Tax Credit - https://www.seia.org/initiatives/sol...tax-credit-itc (It started at 30% but is being tapered off and is currently 25%, it will eventually reach zero in 2021.)
I personal would expect a dramatic drop in the numbers of people buying and installing solar as a result.
There is however going to be a consultation by the UK Government on what if anything to replace the now discontinued schemes with. Of course we all know from bitter experience that any replacement _if there is one_ will be less generous.
I was wondering if Pure Planet might be able to -
a) give us any insider perspective on what is happening
b) participate in the consultation process on our behalf
Another bitter experience with so-called Government consultations is they never ask the real voter/tax payer and only 'vested interests'.
(I point the finger at all parties as they are all as bad.)
Frankly I would not be surprised if at some point in the future you will actually get a tax bill for installing solar either due to the perceived increase in house value or some other nefarious reason. You already get charged VAT.
