Feed in Tariffs (FiTs)

We’re here to help and make signing up as easy as possible.

What is it?

It's a government initiative that pays householders and small businesses to generate their own electricity.

The tariff covers the following technologies- solar, wind, hydro, anaerobic digestion and micro CHP

Generators with installed capacity of up to 5MW can qualify for FiTs (N.B. CHP has a 2kW limit)

How much will I be paid?

The payments are split into two parts:

Generation

You receive a tariff for every unit that you generate even if you use it yourself. These vary by technology type and scale.

Export

This is the payment for every excess unit that goes back into the grid.

Commercial generation - definitions

Close
  • ROC – ROCs (Renewable Obligation Certificates) are certificates issued to generators by Ofgem based on the net renewable electricity that is generated each month by your station. The number of ROCs issued per megawatt hour (MWh) is determined by the technology/fuel used by the station, its size, its location and how long it has been accredited.
  • REGO - A REGO (Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin) is a certificate issued by Ofgem to generators that certifies that their electricity was generated from Renewable sources. You will receive one REGO per MWh of renewable source electricity generated
  • LEC - A LEC (Levy Exemption Certificate) is a certificate issued by Ofgem to a generator as evidence they have produced electricity that is exempt from the climate change Levy (CCL). LECS are issued for electricity generated from a renewable source.
  • TRIAD - The TRIAD periods are defined as the three half-hour periods with the highest demand for electricity across the peak consumption period for November to February. TRIAD payments are an incentive for generators to be generating electricity in these periods. Therefore, as a generator, we would reward you with an additional payment for the average hourly electricity you have produced in these three periods.

    We would pay you for 90% of the value of the TRIAD benefit.
