Feed in Tariff Rates

The Feed-in-Tariff is fixed over a guaranteed, government backed 20 year period which is linked with inflation to the Retail Price Index. The Feed-in-Tariff is part of an automatic digression model whereby the rates are cut every quarter by 3.5% unless otherwise stated by The Department of Energy and Climate Change. Once your installation has been installed and registered at the current tariff rate, your system is then locked in to receive that payment for the next 20 years.

In December 2015, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) announced a 64% cut to all tariff rates from the 15th January 2016 following a public consultation in August 2015 and quarterly digressions will begin from 31st March 2016.

Deployment caps have also been introduced in line with the quarterly digression model. If the deployment cap limit is reached during a quarter all new installations will join a queuing system until the next quarter and next cap begins. The new queuing system does not guarantee which Feed-in-Tariff rate an installation will receive or if a payment will be received until they are registered under a deployment cap. A "rollover" clause has been included by the DECC which means if the number of installations falls short of the maximum deployment cap in a particular quarter, the remaining capacity will be added to the next quarter.
