The Feed In Tariff


THE FEED- IN TARIFF

The Feed-In Tariff (FiT) is a government backed scheme aimed at increasing the take up of small scale Renewable Energy technologies both on our homes and business properties.

Under the FIT's scheme you could get paid for the electricity you generate if you install orhave installed an eligable technology such as PV.

Recent changes have been made to the scheme the main changes are that the amount the customer gets paid per unit has been reduced.

 There is now a requirement for your propperty to have an Energy Performance rating of D or abouve before you apply for the FIT's scheme, which means you can no longer use your PV Solar system as part of the rating.

There is a deployment cap on the amount of instalations that can be registered on the FIT's scheme each month so each application will be put into a queeing system so the sooner the aplication goes in the better. Your chosen installer will keep you informed as to when the cap is reached. This is known as the Deployment Cap.

The Feed In Tariff is designed to generate an income for the owner of the sysytem over a period of 20 years and the rate you get will change inline with inflation in accordance with the Retail Price index.

You get paid for all the Electricity you generate even if you use it all (generation tariff)

You save on your Electricity Bills from any Electricity which you generate and use on site.

You get paid and extra 4.85pence for every unit of electricity you don't use which gets fed back to the grid.


Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)

In order to benifit from the full fit's rate the building that the system will be installed on must have an EPC rating of D or above. We will arange the EPC as part of our service and will assist you should your property not meet the required rating.

EPC's are not required for stand alone systems or bulidings where the energy is not used to heat or cool the building. You will need the Energy Performance Certificate in place before you apply for the Feed In Tarriff.
