Can I get preliminary accreditation for the feed-in tariff for our solar system?

Posted by Cathy Debenham on 16 June 2014 at 12:53 pm

Q: My enquiry is about the preliminary accreditation of a 150kW solar pv system. We have been granted planning permission and have accepted and paid the DNO's firm quotation. I am aware that if we can get preliminary accreditation this will buy us 6 months of time to get the installation carried out. How do we guarantee to get onto the FIT scheme at its current rate?

A: Preliminary accreditation is available to all installations that, once commissioned, would use the ROO-FIT route of accreditation (this applies to solar PV and wind installations with a declared net capacity over 50kW and all anaerobic digestion and hydro installations). Details of how to apply are in the FIT guidance document on the Ofgem website, which you will find here
