The Feed-in Tariff
Feed-In Tariffs were introduced in 2010 to encourage consumers to install certain renewable electricity-generating technologies. Each year the Feed-In Tariff rate is set by the Government’s Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) but once you are registered on the scheme, your payments will not be affected by future reductions. The payments you receive are index-linked so will rise in line with inflation over the lifetime of the tariff period (currently 20 years)
Our Solar PV Panels qualify for the Feed-In Tariff and as long as your home achieves an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) grade D then you will receive money from your energy provider for electricity that you generate.
Once registered with the Feed-In Tariff, you will receive payments for both the Export Tariff and also the Generation Tariff. Under the Export Tariff you receive an amount for each unit of electricity that you export back to the grid. Under the Generation Tariff, you receive an additional amount for each unit of electricity that you generate whether you use this electricity or export it back to the grid.
Our experienced advisers will complete all the necessary paperwork on your behalf to get registered for the Feed-In Tariff and will even organise for an EPC certificate to be carried out if you don’t already have one.
