The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Confirms Feed-In-Tariff and Export Tariff will end March 31st 2019.
Yesterday, The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has confirmed the government’s plans to end the Feed-In-Tariff and Export Tariff as of the 31st March 2019. You can read more about the announcement here but below are the key things you need to know if you are considering solar or already have solar panels installed.
New Solar Customers
If you are considering a solar panel installation and wish to take advantage of the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT), we would urge you to act sooner rather than later to ensure your paperwork and install can be completed before the March 31st deadline. After this date, you will unfortunately not be able to benefit from the FIT.
Existing Solar Customers
If you already have solar panels installed and are signed up to the FIT scheme, don’t worry. You are locked in and your payments won’t be affected.
We will provide a further update as soon as possible.
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
