Feed in Tariff

 

The Feed in Tariff (FITs) scheme ended for new solar installations on 1 April 2019. However, it doesn’t affect installations that are already registered...

 

Applications can be processed until 31 March 2020 if they meet the following criteria;

- Installations up to 50kwh where a microgeneration certification scheme (MCS) certificate was commissioned before 31 March 2019

- There is space for the installation in the relevant deployment cap. This cap is administered by Ofgem and limits the number of installations that can be registered during a three month period 

 

If I switch to you, can I generate my own electricity?

We’re an Ofgem licensed voluntary FITs supplier, which means we can help you generate green electricity from your home.

 

What is the Feed in Tariff scheme?

FITs was introduced by the government to promote small-scale renewable and low carbon electricity generation.
We pay householders that generate their own electricity from renewable or low carbon sources including:

- Solar electricity (PV)
- Wind turbine
- Hydroelectricity
- Anaerobic digestion
- Micro combined heat and power


The scheme guarantees a minimum payment for all electricity you generate and a separate payment for what you export to the national grid. This is in addition to the savings you’ll benefit from by using your own energy. You will be paid for the electricity you generate, even if you use it all yourself!


What is a generation tariff?

A generation tariff is the payment rate per kilowatt hour of electricity that is self-generated. Your payment rate can be found in your FIT summary.

 

What is an export tariff?

Your export tariff unit rate is based on the tariff codes and is set at whichever occurs soonest, either the tariff date or confirmation date.

 

How will my FITs payments be calculated?

There are two ways that the FIT payments are calculated. The Generation Tariff is paid for the total generation your solar panels produce. The export tariff is paid for the electricity you put back to the grid.


The generation and export tariff is subject to changes as made by the authority or secretary of state. They’re also retail price index linked, so may be subject to annual change. We will notify You of any changes in your next statement. Your FITs payment will be adjusted to reflect any changes.

 

How can solar power save me money?

Having a solar power system can reduce your electricity bills significantly depending on the size of the installation. Going solar can reduce your bill so dramatically that electricity costs are no longer a significant factor in your budget. Your savings with solar depend on various factors, like how much energy your system produces and how much of it you use.

 

How can I apply for FITs?

To request an application pack, please email us with your full name and address.

We’re governed by Ofgem to administer the scheme on their behalf as a FIT licensee. This means that we must abide by the guidelines and requests set by Ofgem. Applications which are not fully completed to meet the Ofgem requirements will not be eligible. Once we have confirmed that all eligibility criteria have been met, and you have agreed to your statement of terms declaration, your registration will be completed.

 

How do I submit a meter reading?

The FITs year follows a fiscal year, beginning in April. The year is then grouped into the following quarters: 1st April to 30th June, 1st July to 30th September, 1st October to 31st December and 1st January to 31st March. We will request a quarterly meter reading via email on the 20th of the last month.

When will I be paid?

Once we have accepted and verified your quarterly reading and the FITs period has ended, payment will be made to you within six to eight weeks after the end of the quarter.
