Government cut to solar tariffs blocked as appeal fails

The government has failed in an appeal against a decision which blocked its attempts to reduce solar subsidies.

The court case involved the government's move to halve the payments made to households with solar panels, which it says are unsustainable.

Solar businesses and campaigners had warned thousands of jobs could be lost as a result of the move.

Daniel Green, Chief Executive of Homesun, called the situation 'a complete bamboozle'.
