To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what proportion of the deemed export tariff for solar PV installations energy companies are managing the feed in tariff arrangements for; and what proportion of such installation costs are recoverable as part of their reported generators procurement arrangements.
It is estimated that deemed export accounts for 45% of the total exported electricity under the Feed-In Tariffs scheme (FIT). In FIT Year 8 (2017-18) total exported electricity amounted to 2,483,061.662 MWh of which 1,123,480.502 MWh was deemed to have been exported. This information is not available for individual technologies.
Levelisation is the mechanism by which the cost of the FIT scheme is apportioned across all Licensed Electricity Suppliers according to their share of Great Britain’s electricity market. Levelisation includes costs on a net basis with the value of deemed export to the supplier deducted from the export tariff payments made on deemed export. The value of electricity deemed to have been exported is set by the Secretary of State on an annual basis.
