BHA intelligence indicates that there is currently only 24kW of the 1.1MW capacity available for this quarter in the sub-100kW FiT band for hydro.
If the maximum band capacity of 1.1MW is reached before the end of March, then a 10% contingent degression would be triggered which would lower the FiT rate for any future new schemes. If you attempt to pre-accredit a scheme which is greater than the remaining capacity you will both trigger the degression and suffer the 10% reduction for your scheme.
If you wait until April when new capacity is available you will only suffer a very small default degression.
