2 large-scale solar farms, which won funding in the Government's recent Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction, will not go ahead. The contracts were for a price of £50/MWh which is significantly lower than the current generation costs for solar power. This means that no large solar farms will be built in the next year under either the Renewables Obligation (RO) or CfDs is even though it is predicted that these types of projects could work out cheaper than gas in just 3 years.
