Solar PV Feed In Tariffs Increase

The Solar Photovoltaic feed-in tariffs (FIT) will rise on 1st April 2015. This will be in line with inflation based on the Retail Price Index (RPI).

The RPI rate of 1.6% will be applied to the feed-in-tariff payments to solar electricity generators as from the beginning of April 2015.

This will see the top current rate of 48.07 per kW rise to 48.84 pence per kW. The export rate will also increase from 3.39 per kW to 3.44 pence per kW.
