    FiT / generation: how to see rpi increased rates? 14th Mar 18 at 2:02 PM
    Hi folks,

    I installed my solar panels and registered for FiT payments in December, before rates slightly dropped in Jan.

    If I'm not mistaken, the FiT rates go up each year - around now? Where can I see what the updated rates are?

    Thanks!

    Amazing - thanks!

    I was told the uplift takes place the year after you have it installed - which means since I got solar set up Dec 2017 I qualify for this uplift?

    Does this mean my export goes from 5.03 -> 5.24, my FiT goes from 4 -> 4.16 (standard pv higher energy efficiency).

    Hiya, my understanding is that you will get an uplift on the FiTs as 2018 is the year after the install.

    Regarding the export rate, I think that goes up for everyone, regardless of the install date, so everyone is on the same export rate - actually there are two rates as it changed in 2012, but I digress.
