Ofgem has confirmed the feed-in tariff rates (FiT) for solar photovoltaic technology for the period starting 1 July 2013 until 1 October 2013.

The new FiT rates for installations with an eligibility date on or after 1 July 2013 are as follows:

Description FiT rate p/kWh
0-4kW 14.90
>4-10kW 13.50
>10-50kW 12.57
>50-100kW 11.10
>100-150kW 11.10
>150-250kW 10.62
>250kW-5MW 6.85
Stand-alone 6.85
Export tariff 4.64

All tariff bands >50kW will remain the same as last quarter as the rates for all >50kW bands were reduced by 3.5% across the board on 1 May. The 3.5% reduction in <50kW bands, although modest, hits the feed-in tariffs most popular capacities — for the week ending 21 April, there was 7.9MW of solar capacity installed within the <50kW bands.
