What is FIT?

What is FIT? – Feed-In Tariffs were introduced on 1 April 2010 and replaced UK government grants as the main financial incentive to encourage uptake of renewable electricity-generating technologies. Most domestic technologies qualify for the scheme, including:

The Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) scheme is a government programme designed to promote the uptake of renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies.

Introduced on 1 April 2010, the scheme requires participating licensed electricity suppliers to make payments on both generation and export from eligible installations.

Closure of the Feed-In Tariffsscheme
Please be aware that the Feed-In Tariffs scheme closed to new applicants from 1 April 2019, barring some exceptions. We have published an FAQ and guidance document which help explain the impact of these changes.

Who’s the scheme for?
The Feed-In Tariffs scheme is available for anyone who has installed, or is looking to install, one of the following technology types up to a capacity of 5MW, or 2kW for CHP:

Solar photovoltaic (solar PV)
Micro combined heat and power (CHP)
Anaerobic digestion (AD)
How does the scheme work?
Feed-In Tariffs payments are made quarterly (at least) for the electricity your installation has generated and exported. Payments are made based on the meter reading you submit to your energy supplier (we call them your Feed-In Tariffs licensee).

Feed-In Tariffs payments are made by your energy supplier from the date you become eligible for the scheme.

The number of new installations that can receive support under the Feed-In Tariffs scheme each month is capped – we call these deployment caps. Applications queue for entry into the Feed-In Tariffs scheme:

For small installations, by the date and time the installation’s MCS certificate was issued.
For large installations, by the date and time the application was received by Ofgem.

There are a number of key players on the Feed-In Tariffs scheme.

Generators are the owners of installations who apply to the Feed-In Tariffsscheme.

Feed-In Tariffs Licensees are energy suppliers who process applications submitted for small installations and make Feed-In Tariffs payments to all installations.

Under Ofgem’s safety net, the energy supply of customers of a licensee which has had its licence revoked continues as normal. The process is different for Feed-in Tariff (FIT) customers whose payments were made by the licensee whose licence has been revoked.

Our guidance gives direction on what happens in this situation for Feed-In Tariffs generators. Feed-In Tariffs generators have a responsibility to select a new Feed-In Tariffs Licensee and agree Feed-In Tariffs terms with them in order to continue receiving Feed-In Tariffs payments. When a Feed-In Tariffs generator approaches a new licensee, they will be required to provide all the information they have regarding their installation. This will include name, address, Feed-In Tariffs ID, whether the installation is MCS or ROO-FIT, the MCS or ROO-FIT number, technology type and capacity as well as billing information and the date of the meter reading when the last Feed-In Tariffs payments were made.

We are responsible for administering some aspects of the Feed-In Tariffs scheme:

Running the Central Feed-In Tariffs Register – the database of all accredited installations.
Monitoring deployment caps and publishing reports.
Processing applications for large installations.
Processing applications from community and school applicants.
Ensuring suppliers comply with the Feed-In Tariffs scheme requirements.
The Feed-In Tariffs scheme policy and tariff rates are set by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
