Coping with the Cuts Roadshows

On October 31 Greg Barker, Minister of State at DECC, made the controversial proposal to halve the feed-in tariff (FiT) rates for solar installations in each band up to 50kW, with smaller cuts in the bands from 50kW to 250kW. Since the announcement, many working in industry have prophesised that DECC has killed the industry dead.

But has it?

The continued saga and debate surrounding these changes shows just how it important it is for installation businesses across the country, to nurture the best networks and be aware of the most up-to-date information to ensure the industry continues to thrive in 2012 and beyond.

Solar Power UK will tour as a roadshow to six towns across the UK to present half day events.

Each session will discuss the real impact of the FiT cuts, the impending and possible EPC requirements, how the Green Deal will affect the PV installer, and how the UK solar industry can remain sustainable into 2012.

Who should attend?

MCS qualified installers, distributors, green deal assessors, end users and equipment vendors.

Each event will feature the following programme:

The Implementation of the Green Deal
Speaker to be announced
Analysing PV Pricing Models/How to Remain Competitive with the new FIT rates
Ray Noble, STA
Getting ready for the 1st April
