Energy Suppliers (FiT Licensee)

You should aim to identify the FiT Licensee that you wish to sell to and obtain their application forms as early as possible so that you are well prepared when you receive your Installation Certificate.

There is not a requirement to register for the Feed in Tariff (FiT) payment with your existing electricity supplier. However, there is an increasing tendency for the FiT Licensee to require the generator to be an existing customer.

Currently, all Licensee’s offer the same FiT and Export payments, and any differences relate to specific Terms and Conditions and set up arrangements. Sims Solar can advise on the current market situation at the time of FiT application.

You should be aware that you cannot back date your application more than five days, nor apply earlier than the commissioning date of your system.

A current list of approved licensee is maintained by Ofgem.

When making your application, you will be asked to provide a copy of your Microgeneration Certification Scheme Installer Certificate, EPC Certificate and Proof of Ownership. The application forms themselves are straightforward and Sims Solar can assist with completion as necessary.

Some confusion may exist over the difference between Generation and Export Meters, an explanation is given below:

A Generation Meter is used to measure the amount of electricity generated and is the basis for determining the FiT payment. The Generation Meter reading is also used to determine the export payment where the applicant intends to be paid on the deemed export of 50% of electricity generated.

Export Meters are only required if you plan to sell more than half of what you generate back to the energy supplier. The option to be paid directly for what you export is generally limited to installations greater than 30kW installed capacity.

If you do anticipate selling more than half of what you generate, energy companies will require installation of an export meter (some free of charge, others for a fee), but you will need to contact them (or us) to discuss this.

For more information or help in your application, please do not hesitate to contact Sims Solar.
