This draft guidance explains our proposed administration of the closure of the FIT scheme to new applications from 1 April 2019, including the process for applying for a ROOFIT grace period. The guidance is based on the Feed-In Tariffs (Closure, etc) Order 2018 which was laid on 18 December 2018.

Please note we have also updated and are seeking comment on our ‘Feed-in Tariffs: Guidance for renewable installations’ and ‘Feed-in Tariffs: Guidance for licensed electricity suppliers’.

We invite stakeholders to provide feedback on the draft guidance documents. To find out how to provide comments on our draft guidance, please see the cover letter available below. The closing date for providing comment is 13 February 2019.

We are holding a number of events during the comment period, where we will discuss the guidance. Details are:

  • Licensee workshop: London on 14 January 2019
  • Licensee webinar: 17 January 2019
  • Generator workshop: London on 23 January 2019
  • Generator webinar: 28 January 2019

If you would like to attend one of the generator's events, please sign up by email to REDevelopment@ofgem.gov.uk by 18 January 2019.

We will update this document based on feedback from stakeholders and publish the final version as soon as possible after the closing date of the consultation.
