Solar Panel Feed in Tariff (FIT) Payment Delays

There are many posts on forums about the delays in payments for solar panels for the UK Feed In Tariffs and I know from speaking to a friend that they have yet to receive a payment for their panels installed 10 months ago.

The situation with British Gas (Centrica) has been very different in our experience. We have now received two FIT cheques from them for our solar panels installed 8 months ago (Nov 2011). The most recent payment has addressed some of the criticism that I'd felt with the first payment - namely that they cheque came without any supporting documentation or explanation of the calculations used.

The new British Gas Feed in Tariff advice note is very comprehensive and details the payments made under the Generation Tariff and Export tariff with a split covering the 31 March when the tariff rate changes.

  1. We registered with British Gas in April this year 2012, and still have not received any payments,they say that they are a month behind with applications for Fit, they reject good paperwork from our selves and installers, loose and say they have no record of readings, takes weeks to reply, and do not inform if there is any thing wrong until you query the absents of communication, its now nearly November and still no payment.
