The Department has received a number of representations on the proposals set out in the consultation on feed-in tariffs (FITs) for solar photovoltaics. These include representations suggesting different approaches to implementing the proposed new tariffs including through transitional arrangements such as an intermediary tariff rate.

The consultation closes on 23 December 2011 and we will consider all representations made.
