National Housing Federation chair Matthew Taylor has written to ministers requesting an urgent meeting following proposals by the Department of Energy and Climate Change to dramatically cut Feed-in Tariffs for household solar electricity

He has reinforced the fact that not only would these changes make large solar schemes in poorer neighbourhoods financially unviable, but would also result in millions of tenants missing out on cheaper energy deals even though they would be paying a surcharge on their energy bills for the initiative.

The Federation will be working with policy makers during the consultation period to ensure that housing associations and tenants can benefit from Feed-in Tariffs.
