Consultation description

This consultation proposes amendments to the Feed-in Tariffs scheme (FITs scheme) to address an anomaly that resulted from the introduction of a new tariff band and rate for 100kW to 500kW hydro installations, alongside the introduction of the ability to apply for preliminary accreditation.

We are proposing to introduce a one-off provision to the Feed-in Tariffs Order 2012 that would enable Ofgem to accept and action a request by an applicant to withdraw their preliminary accreditation, where that application was for a hydro installation of a capacity between 100kW and 500kW and submitted to Ofgem between 1 December 2012 and 31 December 2012.
