High Court rules in favour of solar campaigners

 

The High Court has held that the Government's actions in setting a cut-off date for new Feed-in Tariff rates before a consultation on the proposals had closed were potentially illegal, thus clearing the way for a potential judicial review of the process.

The Government has indicated that it will appeal against the decision. The new, reduced FiT rates were due to come into effect from 12th December 2011.
