Feed-in Tariff to End in 2019

In July 2018, it was announced that the Feed-in Tariff would be clsoing in March 2019, earlier than originally planned. Any applications received after the closing date will not be eligible. This means that if you’ve been thinking of installing a solar PV system for a while, you’ll need to act now so that you can add 20 years of FiT payments to the long list of benefits solar energy can bring to your home.

Deployment Caps in 2019

Deployment caps are limits on the total number of installations that can receive a tariff rate during the quarter of the year that tariff is in place. Once the cap is reached, no more installations will receive the generation tariff during that quarter, any remaining applications are added to a queue for the next FiT rate. With this in mind, we recommend getting your application in as soon as you can to give you the best chance of getting the current FiT rates.

How You Can Benefit from the Current FiT Rate

If you’re interested in benefitting from the FiT scheme for the next 20 years, you need to have your solar panels installed before the 31st March 2019 but having the installation finished on this date will be too late to apply so time is of the essence. Find out the process of installing solar to being accepted onto the FiT from start to finish using our FiT Closing Guide to find out the latest you can install solar and still qualify.
