Feed-In Tariff (FIT) rates

Here you can find the tariff rates available under the FIT scheme. The tariff rate tables for all installations have been determined and published in accordance with the Feed-in Tariffs Order 2012 (as amended).

Tariff rates are set by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Please find the tariff tables in the Publications and updates section below.


Information about the FIT scheme

The FIT scheme is a government programme designed to promote the uptake of small-scale renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies. Introduced on 1 April 2010, the scheme requires participating licensed electricity suppliers (FIT Licensees) to make payments on both generation and export from eligible installations. 

Once you’re accredited, a tariff will be assigned to your installation based on a number of factors including but not limited to technology, Total Installed Capacity (TIC), and your position in deployment caps. For more information, see Feed-in Tariffs deployment caps reports.

FIT payments are made based on meter readings taken from compliant metering and submitted to the elected FIT Licensee. For more information, see FIT licensee contact details.

For more information on the FIT scheme, see our About the FIT scheme page.
