Solar subsidies to be cut by more than half | Environment |

Solar subsidies to be cut by more than half | Environment | "Solar subsidies will be dramatically cut by more than half, according to government documents that were prematurely published online and quickly taken down.

The cut will almost double the payback period for householders, the document revealed, meaning someone installing £10-12,000 solar panels will only be in credit after 18 years rather than the current 10.

The official announcement on the slashing of the feed-in tariff rate paid to householders is not expected until next week, according to tweets from the climate change minister, Greg Barker, but the document revealed the rate will be cut from 43.3p per kilowatt hour of solar electricity to just 21p.
