The government will fight against a Court of Appeal decision that the government’s cutting of solar panel subsidies was unlawful.

Three Appeal judges unanimously upheld a 21 December 2011 decision at the High Court that the government cannot axe tariffs brought in under the Labour government.

The government proposed to reduce the feed-in-tariff (FIT) – reimbursements given to households that generate green electricity through solar panels – by 50% from 1 April 2012, although allowed any solar systems installed from 12 December and 31 March 2012 to get the old tariff level.
