    Solar energy - e.on (and other) Feed-in Tariff payment delays - your experiences? 27th Sep 11 at 10:30 AM
    Most people who've installed solar panels in the last 18 months or so will be claiming Feed-in tariff payments from electricity suppliers.

    Some suppliers are paying fairly quickly after the claim goes in - but some aren't. E.on, for example, used to pay within a few days but are now delaying payments for up to a month.

    Great for companies' cashflow - but not for the individuals claiming.

    Experiences with various companies shared here would be useful in helping people to decide which company to go with - and whether to switch away from companies that delay payments due.

    Hello Rheumatoid and can't speak for other suppliers but, with us, FIT applications take about 8 weeks to go through. Applications can be made through our website where there's a form to fill in and a lot more information about what's involved.

    We do, though, only accept applications from existing E.ON customers unless the current supplier isn't a mandatory FIT Licensee or if the customer isn't connected to the national grid.

    After some initial checks and if all's okay, we'll ask for a reading for the day we received the application. Once we have this, we'll register the details and send our FIT welcome pack. This includes the FIT acceptance plan and T&C's. These need signing and returning within 10 days by either post or email.

    Hope this is of interest Rheumatoid. For more information, we've dedicated FIT teams available from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and between 8am and 4pm Saturdays.

    EDF Super Fast again ..
    Hi All,

    I submitted my latest FIT meter reading yesterday 1st March and this afternoon I have had my email from EDF notifying me of my BACS payment.

    Credit where credit is due, they really have got their FIT payment process sorted and can't see how they can be beaten. This is not a one off either, as I have posted each quarter now for some years they are very consistent.

    Well done EDF and stroll on the summer and some decent sunshine !
