Issued today by OFGEM.

This document attempts to clarify several areas such as definition of site, TIC & DNC, grants, and extensions.

Whilst it is aimed at owners/installers of > 50kW systems most of it also applies to smaller systems too.

Hi Ted

Thanks for posting those clarified guidelines, I have had a quick look through and this section looks like it may be of interest to those who have older systems that did not qualify for FIT registration;

Extending an installation which is not FIT accredited
2.51. Where an installation which is not FIT accredited is extended using an eligible low-carbon energy source and the combined capacity does not exceed 5MW TIC, the extension may be eligible to receive FIT accreditation.

Not having an older system I am not sure there is a problem getting the FIT, but I seem to remember early adoptors losing out. So according to the above, they could extend it slightly and get FIT registered at the current rate.

...the extension may be eligible...

A normal reading of that would be that the amount by which the system has been extended would be eligible. If they'd meant that the whole system would be eligible they'd have written something like "...the extended installation may be eligible...".
