Deployment caps in 2017

Deployment caps were implemented at the start of 216, with these applying to applications for the FiT in 2017 and moving forward. This has been done to keep the FiT within budget, once the cap is reached there is no further installations eligible for the generation tariff in that quarter. Any remaining applications are placed into a queue for the next FiT rates instead. With this we advise getting your application in as soon as possible to try and get the current FiT rate.
If you would like to benefit from the current rates, your solar system must be installed by an MCS certified installer. Solar Guide only works with MCS certified companies and you can recieve your free no obligation solar quotes by filling in our quick online form.
