Today, it’s been confirmed that the feed-in tariff incentive for PV solar panels (photovoltaic) is closing to new applicants on 1st April 2019 within the United Kingdom.
The writing’s been on the Tesla PowerWall.
The incentive, first implemented as a get-you-started initiative has run its course.
This has come about because of battery storage technologies, Smart EV (electric vehicle) networks, and the lower costs of PV panels.
Proof of PV success comes with Warrington Borough Council purchasing its own solar park to help meet its energy needs.
