Changes to what makes an eligible premises
06 Jan 2010
The regulator has just updated their definition of what makes an eligible premises for Solar Credits. The key change is that when more than one separate premises (excluding outbuildings) is located at a single address, each will be considered a separate eligible premises. An example of this is a dairy farm that is separate to the residential house on the same farm will now be considered an eligible premises in its own right.
The premises must be clearly separate from the other eligible premises. A garage, studio or other small building in close proximity to the house is considered an outbuilding and is therefore not an eligible premises.
