Five solar installers are celebrating after they reached an out of court settlement for damages following the government’s unlawful changes to the feed-in tariff in 2011. Law firm Asserson, which has represented solar installers throughout the landmark case, announced yesterday that it had successfully settled with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) on behalf of the five claimants it represents, bringing to an end a complex case which has raged for more than six years. Damages were due to have been decided over a ten-week trial commencing in January 2018, however the government elected to settle out of court. Installers were collectively seeking around £240 million but the terms of the settlement are confidential.
