DECC response to onshore wind ‘call for evidence’

Posted on 6 June 2013

DECC-guidance-for-Green-Deal-providers-and-landlordsIn September 2012, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) sent out a ‘call for evidence’ on the costs of onshore wind with a view to reviewing the level of support from 0.9ROC/MWh in England and Wales.

Today, DECC responded to the evidence provided by 70 different projects, confirming that the costs have not changed significantly enough to warrant a review, and support for England and Wales will remain at 0.9ROC/MWh for new installations until 2017.

DECC do however reserve the right to review the banding for all technologies if necessary.

This is the same level of support that the Scottish Government set out in February 2013.
