Feed-in Tariff may remain at 43.3p until 3rd March

Potentially domestic Solar PV installations could still attract the higher Feed-in Tariff rate of 43.3p (upto 4 kWp retro fit systems) until the 3rd March 2012.

If you were considering Solar PV at the new rate of 21p now is certainly the time to go ahead as you may well benefit from receiving 43.3p / kWh of electricity produced for 25 years instead of 21p.  This is because the Government has been challenged in the courts about the legality of the timings of introducing the proposed new lower rate.

If the Government loses the court case then those who have a Solar PV system MCS registered and  commissioned anytime up to the 3rd March will receive the higher rate giving them a fantastic return.  If the Government wins and the PV system is commissioned between 12th December and 1st April they will receive the lower 21p rate.
