Ministers are being accused of covertly reintroducing consumer subsidies for onshore wind turbines, despite the Conservatives’ pledge to ditch the lucrative incentives for energy firms.

A new government green energy scheme will guarantee payments to operators of  pairs of turbines each up to 490 feet high, and solar farms spanning up to 20 acres, The Sunday Telegraph can disclose.

Campaigners against further onshore turbines said the policy could encourage an “explosion” of new wind and solar schemes across the country, as well as the extension of existing projects.
