What is the feed-in tariff rate with inflation rise?
Posted by Cathy Debenham on 7 June 2013 at 10:09 am
Q: My PV installation is now 2.5 years old. The feed-in tariff (FIT) is supposed to rise with inflation each year but wherever I search on the web I can only seem to find the rates for new installations. I am registered with Scottish and Southern who no longer provide a breakdown of payments and three emails to them requesting the 2013 uprating and effective date of change have remained unanswered. Help!
A: I fully understand your frustration. It’s not always easy to navigate the Ofgem website! And I'm surprised that your FIT supplier didn't let you know about the rise. I'd have thought it should be a standard bit of customer service! If you click this link you will be able to download the (rather complex) table that has details of all the FIT rates for the year 2013/4.
The rates change on 1 April each year, and your feed-in tariff supplier should have asked you for a reading just prior to the change, so they know how much of your generation to apply the new tariff to.
