This scheme has been introduced by the UK Government to help increase the
level of renewable energy in the UK towards our legally binding target
of 20% of total energy from renewables by 2020.
The Feed In Tariff gives you this:
A payment of 13.87p for all the solar electricity you produce, even if you use it yourself. This is for systems up to 4kWp in size.
Additional bonus payments for electricity you export into the grid, which is currently 4.64p per kWh.
A reduction on your standard electricity bill, from using energy you produce yourself.
- For 4-10kW PV systems the top tariff rate is 13.1p per kWh
- 10-50kW PV systems the Feed in Tariff is 11.7p per kWh
- There are also Tariffs for systems larger than 50kW, systems off this size are also eligible for the Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) which is an alternative system
The above tariffs will reduce by 3% on 31st March 2015.

Current Generation can offer customers returns of over 10% to customers looking to claim Feed-in Tariff payments if they have favourable locations.
Alternatively for larger systems it is possible to claim funds under the Renewable Obligation Certificate or ROC scheme.
