The Feed-in-Tariff scheme (FITs) is an environmental programme introduced by the Government to promote widespread uptake of a range of small-scale renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies. It is available through licensed electricity suppliers, requiring some of them to make tariff payments on both generation and export of renewable and low carbon electricity.
The first point of contact for information on electricity generation and how to join the FIT scheme is the Energy Saving Advice Service (England and Wales) or the Energy Saving Trust (Scotland):
Energy Saving Advice Service in England and Wales - (Tel. 0300 123 1234)
Energy Saving Trust in Scotland - (Tel. 0800 512 012)
Information on FITs policy (which is set by the Government), including guidance on complaint procedures and processes, is owned by the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
Go to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) website.
Information on Ofgem’s operational role in delivering the FITs can be found in the sustainability section of our website.
