Phew....I thought that this article would affect us but aparently it is just set to limit the huge expanses of solar panels that are being planned for land to cash in on the subsidy...

Not sure- look on Navitron forum- apparently the govt are to slash fits as from 1 Dec - down to about 20p . The energy trust website had a pdf file up last night ( I read it) but it appears to have been taken down today.

Has yours been fitted yet? If it has & is registered you will be ok.

The dates seem to be

install fitted & registered before 8/12/11 get the full rate for the life of the scheme.
After 8/12/11 but before 1/4/12 you get the full rate till 1/4/12 then the lower rate.
Installs after 1/4/12 get the lower rate.

The leaked document can be found HERE not 100% confirmed but expected to be confirmed on Monday.

Ours have been fitted but the sun does not seem to have shone since then  Today has registered less than 0.5 units.

Ours did not register any thing today. But then water power would have been the system of choice today....

Weve decided to do our own solar thermal tube fitting.

More details when the apex is up.

I have just had a phone call from the company who fitted our panels confirming that we are guaranteed the FIT that we signed up for but that they are frantically busy because they have been told that the FIT for new business is to be halved in just 3 weeks time
They are trying to get systems up and running before that date but I would imagine that this news is going to be a hughe shock for businesses like theirs that have set up to take advantage of 'selling' the FIT.
We have had ours because it will pay for itself in 8 years and the price is set for 25 years, it's not so much of a draw when it is going to take 16 years to pay off
