The Solar Feed in Tariff

What is the Solar Feed-in-Tariff?

With the Governments Feed-In-Tariff, you get paid for the green energy which you generate, even if you use it. By installing a solar PV system on to your roof space, you will receive a tax-free income via the FIT by means of a reward for investing in renewable technology. If you are wishing to claim the feed-in-tariff it is essential that your install is carried out by an MCS approved company.

Schemes which offer 'free' solar panels allow you to reduce your bills, but they will not give you the benefit of the tax free income from the FIT.

20 Year Income

With Solar PV systems, you will be able to claim the Governments FIT for 20 years, tax free. The rate is expected to drop in the future, but you will receive guaranteed payments for the rate at the time of being approved.

Who Pays You?

Any utility supplier with over 250,000 domestic customers are required to take part in the FIT scheme. The payments which you receive will come from the utility supplier you are in contract with.

Import & Export

With the FIT, you get paid for the energy which you generate (import tariff), and you can even sell what you don't use back to the grid via the export tariff. If you need more power, you simply draw from the grid as normal.
