With the start of the new FIT Year only hours away it is important to remember to take a Generation Meter reading from your small scale microgeneration scheme so that your future generation receives the appropriate higher rate of FiT payment (where this applies) from 1 April 2014.

The uplift mechanism has become more complicated over the years. My previous discussions on the matter suggested that all installs from November 2013 to March 2014 would not receive the FiT uplift on the 1 April 2014, but would have to wait until 2015. Clarification provided by OfGem today suggests that it is only installs completed so far this year (i.e., January 2014 to March 2014)  that will have to wait until 2015 for the start of the their annual inflationary rise in FIT payments. They will still receive the inflationary uplift in the Export Tariff from 1 April 2014.

OFGEM has published revised Feed in Tariff (FiT) rates for all eligible installations registered in years 1 - 4 (31 March 2014).
