What is Feed-in Tariff

The UK Feed-in Tariff Scheme (FiT), which went live on 1st April 2010, is an environmental program introduced by the UK Government to promote widespread uptake of a range of small-scale renewable electricity generation technologies. This scheme can be highly lucrative for those owning suitable renewable generation plant. The FiT scheme has been set up with size brands for these renewable developments; this gives higher tariffs for smaller projects, which enables all renewable energy projects to have similar returns on investment. This Tariff is paid by your electricity supply company for all units of electricity that are generated from your wind turbine, even if you use all the units yourself. Any excess electricity can be exported to the grid for a minimum of 3.1p per unit. Once a generator has connected to the grid and registers for the FiT scheme, then these payments are guaranteed by the Government to be paid to you by your supply company for 20 years.
