Feed in Tariffs

Feed in Tariffs (FITs) became available in Great Britain on 1 April 2010 and isn't available in Northern Ireland - although this is under review.

Under this scheme energy suppliers have to (compulsory for big six suppliers) make regular payments to householders and communities who generate their own electricity from renewable or low carbon sources such as solar electricity panels (PV) or wind turbines.
