Solar PV Feed in Tariff - 2nd fast-track review 31/10/11

by Stef Dua

As predicted a second fast-track review within 12mths of the solar PV FIT has been announced by the Government, with changes to tariffs due to come into force for installations completed and registered after 12th December 2011.

Installations completed and registered before this date will be unaffected.  Installations registered after 12th December will receive the current tariff rate up until the 31st March and then receive the reduced to rate from 1st April 2012.  Installations after 31st March 2012 will start off at the new tariff rates and potentially be subject to caveats based upon the energy efficiency rating of the registered property where the installation is sited. 

Proposed new tariff rates:
