Deployment Caps in 2018

Deployment caps prevent too many installations from receiving the Feed-in Tariff during a quarter. Once a certain number of installations are receiving the Feed-in Tariff, and the cap is reached, no further installations are eligible for the generation tariff during that quarter. Any remaining applications are placed into a queue for the next FiT rates instead. To give you the best possible chance of getting the new FiT rate, we recommend getting your application in as soon as possible.

How You Can Benefit from the Current Feed-in Tariff Rate

If you'd like to benefit from the new Feed-in Tariff rates, your solar panels must be installed before 1st October 2018. In addition to this, your solar system has to be installed by an MCS certified installer using MCS certified products. After the installation is complete your installer will register you on the central FiT database and you'll receive a certificate confirming Feed-in Compliance.
