Feed in Tariffs

What is the Feed-in Tariff

The Feed-In Tariff, also known as FIT, became available in the UK and went live from April 1 2010 and is the electricity sector of the Clean Energy Cash Back scheme – a Government-backed scheme that pays people who create their own electricity using green technology including Solar PhotoVoltaic panels.

The Feed-In Tariff guarantees a minimum payment for all electricity generated by the system, as well as an additional payment for the unused electricity produced that can be exported to the grid, known as the Generation tariff and Export tariff respectively. These payments will boost household savings as bills will be reduced by using electricity generated from the PV Panels.

1. Generation tariff

A set rate paid by the energy supplier for each (kWh) of electricity you generate - TAX FREE.

This rate will change each year for new entrants to the scheme however once you join, it will continue on the same tariff for

20 years for Solar PV.

2. Export tariff

A further 4.5p/kWh from your energy supplier for each unit you export to the grid - Guaranted for 20 Years.

3. Energy savings

Cut your electricity bills in half, by using electricity you produce yourself - Protect against future energy

price rises.

Reason the Feed-in tariff was introduced?

The tariffs have been introduced by the Government to help increase the level of renewable energy in the UK towards our legally binding target of 15% of total energy from renewables by 2020 (up from under 2% in 2009).

Who is it for?

Broadly speaking, the FITs are for everyone, including households, landlords, businesses and even communities organisations such as schools, care homes and village halls.
