Will this include Jeremy Leggett?

Hundreds of solar companies were likely to go bust by Christmas, it was claimed, after Greg Barker, the minister for climate change, said “feed-in tariff” subsidies were too generous and would be halved.

We can but hope, eh?

Such should be the fate of subsidy junkies.

  1. So what happens to all those cells that are basically leased on people’s roofs?

    Tim adds: Well, unless the government is doing something very stupid indeed (yes, I know) the cut in FIT will only affect new installations.

  2. I don’t know. It has its upside. As long as Leggett is getting relatively minor solar subsidies, we know where he is and what he is up to. If they stop we won’t be able to see his hands. We could get into some real deep doo doo.

  3. I cannot believe that rational businessmen based an entire industry on the words of promise from our commitment-keeping, truth-only-telling, honest current Prime Minister. One only has to look at his record for breach of promise to see he is second only to B-liar, and that only because he hasn’t had as long at the game. They’re having their fingers burnt, just as the electricity buying public are. They should go back to their day jobs as double glazing salesmen, loft insulators, asbestos removal specialists, driveway tarmac-ing, house clearances and the myriad other get rich quick scams they crawled out from.

  4. Quoth one of the chancers quoted in the article you link: “We built a business on the back of David Cameron’s promises.”

    It would take a heart of stone not to laugh.
