The feed-in tariff for solar PV panels will reduce by 3.5% from 1 January 2015 for all new installations of up to, but not exceeding, 50kW.  This is as part of the government's planned degression for the feed-in tariff.

Those who have already installed solar PV and are already registered with a feed-in tariff supplier before 1 January 2014 will not be affected by the change.
