The Feed in Tariff (FiT)

The Feed in Tariff (FiT) became available on 1st April 2010 and closed to new entrants on the 1 April 2019.

Anyone registered to recive payments under the FiT scheme will continue to do so.

The payments received are tax free and indexed to the CPI until the term of the agreement is reached. The annual adjustment is made on the 1 April each year.

The Table below shows the current FiT rates for a system in stalled in October 2010 (scheme launch) and March 2019 (scheme closure). A full current listing including FiT rates from 2010 is provided by Ofgem.
