Dan Byles – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Energy and Climate Change

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Dan Byles on 2015-02-09.

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, when his Department first became aware of wind turbines being excessively de-rated in order for generators to benefit from higher than intended feed-in tariffs; and if he will make a statement.

Amber Rudd

We are actively monitoring the extent of de-rating and will consider whether action is necessary to prevent wind developers from unfairly exploiting the FITs scheme.
