What is Feed-in Tariff (FIT)?

Feed-in Tariff is a way for energy suppliers to pay households that produce their own electricity. Set up by Ofgem it pays for energy produced by eligible systems, such as solar photovoltaic panels, wind turbine, or micro CHP.

It’s open to households and community groups in England, Scotland, and Wales. Northern Ireland is currently excluded. The regular payments are guaranteed by the government.
