The Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) scheme 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.
To find out more about renewable electricity generation and how to join the FIT scheme, your initial point of contact should be the Energy Saving Trust which can be contacted on 0300 123 1234 (England and Wales) or 0800 512 012 (Scotland).
FIT Licensees are required to take applicants through the registration process. FIT Licensees are also the main point of contact with accredited customers for the submission of meter readings and are responsible for making payments based on meter readings.
Applicants wishing to receive FITs for renewable generation are advised to contact their supplier in the first instance.
Information on FITs policy (which is set by the government), including guidance on complaint procedures and processes, can be found on the web pages of the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
Information on our operational role in delivering the FITs can be found in the Environmental Programmes section on our website.
