The Government yesterday lost its appeal against a High Court ruling which found that cuts to solar tariff payments are legally flawed.

This ruling is a victory for everyone who has been warning for months that the Government’s deep cuts to solar power are not only bad for jobs and the environment, but legally flawed as well. The Government must now think again and bring forward more measured proposals that guarantee the continued growth of the solar industry and also put feed-in tariffs on a sustainable footing.
