It can make a difference. I have panels on my roof, I get enough on my FIT to pay for the oil to heat the house, effectively meaning we only pay for electricity. Fortunately we got in on the highest rate FIT which is locked in for the next 25 years.

It's basically another policy which wasn't properly thought through at the time. It was only ever intended to be for domestic use, but then some clever so-and-so's saw a loophole, took out long term leases on unused agricultural land, and plastered solar panels all over it, which has cost the government a fortune, one of the reasons why the FIT has been scaled back over the last 2/3 years.
