FEED-IN TARIFF

The Feed-In Tariff scheme was launched in Great Britain on 1st April 2010. Under this scheme energy suppliers have to make regular payments to householders and communities who generate their own electricity from solar electricity panels (PV).  

Updated Tariff from 1st October 2018

If you are eligible to receive the Feed-In Tariff then you will benefit in 3 ways:
  • Generation Tariff – the Solar PV installations provides a set rate paid by the energy supplier for each kWh of electricity you generate for 20 years.
  • Export Tariff – you will earn a further 5.24p for each kWh exported back to the National Grid.
  • Energy bill savings – you don’t have to buy in as much electricity from your supplier due to your own generation.
  • MCS Approved Installer - ELC54089 To qualify for the Feed-In Tariff scheme you need to use an MCS Accredited installer, such as UK Alternative Energy. We understand the benefits of the system, and how it can work best for you.
