Feed-in Tariff

Greenspan Electric Cairnmore 1

The UK Government implemented the Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) on 1 April 2010. This system encourages the uptake of small-scale low-carbon energy technologies and helps to:

  • Engage communities, businesses and domestic households in the fight against climate change.
  • Reduce reliance on centrally generated electricity.
  • Increase security of supply for the UK.
  • Reduce losses through transmission and distribution networks.

Several changes were announced in the Feed-in Tariff Review, December 2015. The Review and associated consultations can be read in full on the UK Government website.

Please be aware that the FIT scheme closes to new applicants from 1 April 2019.

Please note, the FiT scheme is an increasingly complex one. Greenspan endeavour to keep these figures up-to-date and correct. This information is provided on a non-financial-advisory basis and the Ofgem website should always be consulted.
