The Ofgem Central Feed-in Tariffs Register does not make a specific distinction between FITs payments received by investors and those received by individual home/business owners. However, the register (as at 23 November 2011) does show that of the 109,810 installations in total, 97.7% are domestic, 1.7% are commercial, 0.1% are industrial and 0.6% are community installations.

The most recent available figures also show that for 19.6% of solar photovoltaic installations, the generator or nominated recipient was in receipt of FITs payments for more than one PV installations.
