Feed-in tariff for solar PV falls, but ROI increases
Posted by Cathy Debenham on 2 November 2012 at 10:09 am
The first automatic degression of the solar PV feed-in tariff rate occurred yesterday. To put that in plain English, the rate for new installations fell by 3.5 per cent for all installations of 150kW and below. For a 4kW installation that meant a reduction in tariff from 16p per kWh to 15.44p.
However, as most of the energy companies have increased electricity prices by around 10 per cent in the past month or two, the rate of return will not fall with the tariff.Cathy Debenham
