The government has responded to further consultation changes to financial support for solar PV.
The document sets out the government response to proposals for a) the introduction of a possible grid delay grace period under the Renewables Obligation and b) the definition for other-than-stand-alone installations under the Feed-in Tariff scheme.
It has decided to introduce a 12-month grid delay grace period.
It was also decided that projects qualifying for this grace period will need to commission and have an accreditation date on or before 31 March 2016. New stations benefitting from this grid delay grace period will receive the ROC level in force on the date of accreditation.
The three pieces of evidence required to qualify for the grace period are the same as those outlined in the consultation, with one minor amendment allowing confirmation of the grid connection to be provided by an email or letter.
