Rates Explained

Where these rates are shown, the ‘higher rate’ prevails if neither of the following two conditions apply:

  • The ‘lower rate’ relates to energy efficiency is payable where the system provides power to a building, and the building does not have an EPC certificate showing its energy efficiency in bands A to D.
  • The ‘medium rate’ is 90% of the higher rate (rounded to two decimal places). It relates to multiple ownership and is payable where the system owner has a total of 25 FIT-registered PV installations.
