Feed-in Tariffs

Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs) were Introduced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change in April 2010 to stimulate deployment of small-scale (less than 5MW) low-carbon energy generation installations. The tariff will guarantee set payments from an electricity supplier of their choice for the electricity they generate and use as well as a guaranteed payment for unused surplus electricity they export back to the grid.
