The Feed-In Tariff rates are published by Ofgem at https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/environmental-programmes/fit/fit-tariff-rates. The current higher PV tariff of 3.93p per kWh is available for houses with EPCs of D or higher. The lower tariff of 0.25p per kWh is available for houses with EPCs of E or lower and those houses with an EPC of level D or above that was not issued before the commissioning date of the installation.
