Future tariffs may be adjusted for contingent degression. Indicative tariffs after 1st Apr 2017 should be as per the degression table, but adjusted for RPI indexation and contingent degression – see latest tariffs from Ofgem here.

We used to publish helpful tables on historical and expected future tariff levels, but the government has made so many changes to the banding, degression intervals etc. that it’s just too time consuming.
These tables show only the generation tariff. The Feed-In Tariffs scheme also provides two further benefits: an additional payment for surplus energy exported to the grid (this is called the export tariff) and a saving on energy purchased from your electricity supplier.
