Deadline for solar PV installations approaching

Once again our industry has an impending Feed in Tariff deadline, this time it’s the closure of the scheme as we know it from 31 March 2019.

At the time of writing this, RED Electrical still has availability to install new systems before the scheme is wrapped up.

The deadline of 31 March 2019 means that your system needs to be installed, commissioned and MCS certified by that date. However, once you have your MCS certificate you have until 31 March next year to apply to a Feed in Tariff licensee (i.e. apply to an electricity company). You therefore don’t need to panic.

Ordinarily we wouldn’t advise that you should rush into any installation arrangements and that you should take your time to make your decision. However, installation work is getting busy and stock is moving fast, therefore if you’ve decided that you’re having solar panels installed then please don’t leave it until the 11th hour.
