FiT deployment caps

These caps were implemented in 2016 to keep the FiT within budget and mean that once a cap is reached no further installations will be eligible for the generation tariff in that quarter. This means any remaining applications in the queue will then be in the queue to receive the next FiT rate. This means you should get your application in as soon as possible to try and get the current FiT rate. In order to qualify for the FiT your system must be installed by an MCS accredited installer.
