The Feed-in Tariff (FIT) ended on 1st April 2019

The government's Feed-in Tariff scheme closed on 1st April 2019. This means that all renewable power generation installations certified after that date won't be eligible for the 20-year payment scheme. 

If your installation was certified by 31st March 2019, you'll still be able to register for payments with a FIT licensee, like Bulb, until 31st March 2020. 

What if I've already signed up for FIT payments? 

If you're already signed up to receive FIT payments from Bulb, you'll continue to receive payments until the end of your 20 year eligibility period. 

Where do I find out my certification date? 

Your certification date is the date your installation certificate was produced. It's found on the top of your MCS certificate. This should've been given to you by your installer in your Handover Pack. 

Can I still switch my Feed-in Tariff to a different licensee? 

Yes, the FIT end date only applies to registering new systems, so you'll still be able to switch to any FIT licensee. You can apply to change your FIT payments to Bulb in your Bulb account

What's next? 

At Bulb, we think that anyone who uses microgeneration technology to help reduce their carbon footprint should be rewarded by being paid a fair price for what they put back onto the grid. We're working on our own Export Tariff, which is currently in Alpha (the early stages of development). We've written more about the thinking behind this on the blog.
