It’s a fact: the new feed-in tariff will take effect from April 1, 2012. Next Sunday, the feed-in tariff rates for photovoltaic systems with a total installed capacity of 250 kW or less will fall, while a lower multi-installation tariff is introduced by the Government.
According to the Department of Energy and Climate Change website, that “multi-installation tariff applies to PV installations where the generator or nominated recipient for FITs already owns or receives FIT payments for more than 25 PV installations on different sites. Such installations will receive a tariff set at 80% of the level of the standard tariff.” (more…)
With the government originally due to review the Feed-in Tariff in summer 2012 it was a surprise to everyone when they announced a consultation for 31st October 2011. However this was not nearly as big as the surprise as the outcome of the meeting!
The government have decided that from the 12th December 2011 the Feed-in Tariff will be reduced by around 50%. See latest Feed-in Tariff »
Another meeting, the fourth in 9 months, has been planned for the new year which will consist of a comprehensive review.
