ROO-FIT is a Government Accreditation for large Solar Installations. If your generator meets either of the following criteria, it must apply for ROO-FIT in order to benefit from Feed-In Tariff payments via the ROO-FIT scheme.
Criteria for ROO-FIT Accreditation:
- Generators between 50kW and 50MW
- Total Installed Capacity (TIC) up to and including 5MW
Essentially, large installations of Solar PV must comply with this accreditation in order to receive Feed-In Tariff payments.
Well, as we exit a lockdown lifestyle, the Government has extended validity periods for preliminary accreditations and pre-registrations which expire between 1 March and 30 September 2020. For more info: click here
Whilst the scheme closed to new applicants from 1 April 2019, these measures are sure to be received well across the country. OFGEM has published an FAQ and guidance document which helps explain the impact of these changes.
