Scheme name


The Standard License Conditions require FIT licensees to verify meter readings at least once every two years.

Since the start of the scheme the only means by which this has been conducted is a physical meter read. We have received representation that this need not be the case for meters that are capable of being read remotely from the installation site, i.e. automatic meter readers (AMRs).

We have sought opinion on how our proposed changes will affect scheme participants at an operational level and whether or not there are additional changes that can be made to our guidance.

In total we received 27 responses and have published the non-confidential responses below. We have published our response to the consultation, explaining the decisions we have made in response to stakeholder feedback and the changes we have made to our guidance for suppliers.
