Feed-In-Tariffs (FITs)

Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) is a UK Government scheme designed to encourage  the uptake of a range of small-scale renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies.

Under FITs, you could be paid for the electricity you generate if you install or have installed an eligible system like solar PV, a wind turbine, hydro or micro CHP technology.

The FIT scheme was closed to new applicants from 1 April 2019, barring some exceptions. If you’ve installed solar panels and had your Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certificate issued before 31 March 2019, you can still apply to your energy supplier until 31 March 2020.
