U.K. Confirms Plan to End Onshore Wind Subsidy a Year Early

The U.K. government confirmed plans to end a subsidy program for onshore wind farms a year early, after finishing consultations on the issue.

The Renewables Obligation will close for new projects on April 1, the Department of Energy and Climate Change said Thursday in a statement on its website. About 2.9 gigawatts of projects will be eligible for a grace period that allows them to complete building after that date and still qualify for the support, the department said.
