Subsidies for large solar projects to be changed

Leave a comment

An interesting article in the Daily Telegraph.  It may appear as if the inflated figures promoted by PCC may be about to burst with ROCs being phased out in 2015 instead of 2017.

CfD (Contracts for Difference) only pay for what electricity is produced and how this reduces Carbon waste (more or less – obviously being a government scheme it is not that easy!)

ROCs pay for what Carbon that might be saved if the solar generators were at maximum efficiency (which they never do!)
