Following its deliberations on April 19, the French Commission for Energy Regulation published the new feed-in tariffs for solar PV installations up to 100kW this week. The rate is dependant on the number of applications to the CRE in the previous trimester. Residential BIPV applications amounted to 37.4MW and non-residential applications were 102.4MW resulting in a decrease to the FiT of 4.5% and 9.5% respectively.

Ground-mounted installations will fall to €0.1079 and residential BIPV arrays have been set to a maximum of €0.1934.
