ime is running out to voice your opinion on the Government’s controversial Comprehensive Review of the feed-in Tariff, with the


consultation closing on 26 april. Set to take effect from October, the plans would see tariff rates frozen for plants up to 500kW and reduced for plants above 500kW, with plants below 250Kw receiving 14.7p/kWh. Plants between 250-500kW would receive 13.7p and those up to 5MW would receive 9p/kWh, with all tariff rates reducing annually from April 2014 at the latest. ADBA is preparing its response to the Review and is calling on members to provide valuable input. Whatever your opinion, we want to hear it! Whether you prefer to email us your views or share them in person at our Members’ Meeting in London on 19 April, time is of the essence – together we can make a difference!


<250Kw = 14.7p/kWh


250-500kW = 13.7p/kWh


up to 5MW = 9p/kWh
