Just released today and it looks like the figure to be used for this April's rise in the FIT rates is going to be 2.7%*
Haven't done the math yet but better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick!!!!

On the face of it, 2.7% looks a bit low for RPI.  It is down 0.5% on November's whereas CPI is down only 0.2%.

But delving deeper, in December 2017 RPI was up 0.2% on November and CPI down 0.1%.  So it looks as though there was something in December 2017 which caused an upward blip which has now fallen out.

Net result is that we all got a 0.3% cash benefit a year earlier than we otherwise would have.  Yippee
