Ofgem has released its official installation figures for May, June and July which determine what the feed-in tariff rates will be starting from November 1 2012.
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has identified three capacity bands in which installed capacity is monitored: Domestic Scale (0-10kW), Small Commercial (10-50kW) and Large Commercial installations (50kW-5MW). The installation levels in each of these bandings will determine how much the various FiT banding rates will be reduced by. Installations in the domestic-scale banding stood at 163.769MW. As this lies in between 100-200MW this will enact a 3.5 percent tariff digression on the existing ≤4kW tariff band (16p) and >4-10kW tariff band (14.5p).
