Hiya. Here, we go, and there will be a test later:

Higher - EPC of D or better.

Middle - EPC of D or better, but the applicant is the recipient of 25 or more PV FiT eligible installations (think Rent-a-Roof, local housing association, large private landlord etc).

Lower - EPC of E or worse.

Actually the middle rate applies on the 26th and subsequent installations as it only kicks in once you already have 25 other installations. So you can have up to and including 25 installations all at the higher rate.

Isn't that what I said, applicant is the recipient of 25 or more. So add the application to the 25 (or more) received equals 26 (or more)? Perhaps I should have included 'other' for clarification.

Yes, the 'other' makes a difference.
