Feed-in tariff registration: why is it taking so long?
Posted by Cathy Debenham on 3 September 2010 at 9:55 am
I've heard a number of complaints from people about how long it's taking to register their solar or wind installation for the feed-in tariff, so when I was talking to Ofgem about grants this week, I asked about that too.
It appears that the delay is mostly in migrating installations that were registered under the renewables obligation (RO) to the feed-in tariff. The necessary legislation wasn't passed until March this year, leaving Ofgem no time to get the system set up before feed-in tariff came in on 1 April.
There are about 6,000 installations in this category, and so far, 1,500 have been migrated across. I am assured that the remaining ones will all be migrated by 1 October.
Most importantly, no one will lose out on any income due as a result of this delay!
