Deployment caps

The deployment caps introduced at the start of 2016 will still apply to applications for the FiT moving forward. These caps were implemented 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 and be put into a queue for the next.

In order to qualify for the FiT your system must be installed by an MCS accredited installer. You can get free solar PV quotes from these accredited installers using our simple online form.
