Eligible individual and community-owned renewable electricity generating schemes below 50 kW can currently receive the small scale feed-in tariff, while those between 50 kW and 5 MW are able to choose support under either the small scale feed-in tariff or the renewables obligation. Work is currently under way to determine the appropriate eligibility criteria for the feed-in tariff with Contract for Difference scheme and how it should interact with other support mechanisms. Further details will be published in quarter 1 next year.
