About the Feed In Tariff

The Feed in Tariff provides support for residential and small commercial renewable energy installations.The Feed in Tariff Scheme pays UK energy consumers for the power they produce through renewable technologies.

Householders and businesses are paid a tariff for every Kilowatt hour (kWh) of electricity generated and an extra tariff for unused energy that is “exported” back to the grid. The Feed in Tariff covers solar PV, wind, hydro, micro CHP and anaerobic digestion installations under 5MW of capacity. The scheme is open to schools, businesses and households alike.
