New rates come into force after the Department of Energy and Climate Change published the results of its consultation.

The new rates are as follows:

The changes do not come into effect until 8 February 2016 and in order to protect the new budget allocation of £100 million the DECC has enforced a four-week pause on new feed-in tariff installations which will run from 15 January to 8 February 2016.

Any installation made between those dates will not be eligible for the previous rates and will receive the new rates from 8 February onward.

The first rate will run from 8 February to 31 March, after which quarterly degressions will begin to occur as listed below:
