RECC has warned of the dangers of widespread mis-selling in the run-up to the proposed date for closing the Feed-In Tariff Scheme to new generators (31 March 2019). Based on RECC's experience of consumer detriment resulting from the major changes to the Scheme in March 2012 and April 2016 RECC has advocated a range of measures which will mitigate the dangers for domestic consumers of mis-selling, shoddy workmanship and fraudulent MID registration that are bound to occur in the run up to the deadline.
RECC was responding to the second part of BEIS' consultation on the future of the Feed-In Tariff Scheme which closed on 13 September. The first part was a Call for Evidence for alternative support mechanisms which closed on 30 August. The second part was a detailed consultation on the practical arrangements for closing the Feed-In Tariff Scheme. (See News item of 31 August.)
