THE Govern­ment has an­nounced a cut to “Feed in Tar­iff” lev­els for own­ers of pho­to­voltaic panels.

The FIT changes see the cur­rent rate of 43p paid out for ev­ery unit of re­new­able elec­tric­ity gen­er­ated to 21p per unit gen­er­ated.

The changes take ef­fect from De­cem­ber 12. Bri­tish Gas say to qual­ify for the higher rate, your panels need to be in­stalled by a Mi­cro­gen­er­a­tion Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Scheme (MCS) cer­ti­fied in­staller, who should reg­is­ter you on the cen­tral MCS data­base. The in­staller will then send you a cer­tifi­cate con­firm­ing MCS com­pli­ance. You will then need to send en­ergy sup­plier a com­pleted ap­pli­ca­tion form along with the MCS cer­tifi­cate by De­cem­ber 11.

They will then add you to the Ofgem Cen­tral FIT Reg­is­ter,
