Feed In Tariffs for Commercial Customers?

    We're currently building a large new build house that's going to have 3 phase power.

    We've designed the roof area to be very suitable for solar (it's all south facing) so there is room to have up to 50kw of solar on it. Obviously this size of installation would be way more than we'd need for most of the year so it only makes sense if we can get paid for exporting the electricity.

    If we were to avail of the new Micro Generation system (I could do it that my business was getting connected if it has to be commercial) it would allow us to export up to 50kw on our 3 phase connection.

    My question is does anyone have any idea of the feed in tariffs available commercially? I can see what they are for domestic customers in the other thread on this but I can't find anything on rates for commercial customers and the providers I've contacted have not got back to me.

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Non domestic connections are set by the Cru at 13.5c/kwh. I think it's set for 5 years but not totally sure. Also not sure if it's a minimum rate or if it's the rate.

    It's in the Cru document somewhere

    With the nc7 form you don't have to have a non domestic connection, it can be done on a domestic one too.

    Many of the FITS are the same for commercial and domestic. I know the Bord Gais rate is applicable to commercial anyway. On top of this, as graememk pointed out, you would also be eligible for the CEP which would make sure you receive the greater of the FIT offering or 13.5c/kWh (IE gov guarantee a price floor).
