Feed-in tariff for businesses


What are business feed-in tariffs (FiT)?

Feed-in tariff is a:

  • Cashback for generating green energy
  • Financial incentive for business customers to generate their own low-carbon energy
  • Government backed scheme also referred to as Clean Energy Cashback

Why should my business invest in generating green energy?

  • Save your business money on your energy bills
  • Earn income from the renewable electricity you generate
  • Improve your green credentials and help the environment
  • Any FiT payments are in addition to the savings you make by generating your own business electricity

How does the feed-in tariff work?

You're paid for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity you generate from a renewable or low-carbon source, such as solar PV (photovoltaic), even if you use it. You can also be paid extra for the electricity you don't use, as it'll be fed into the National Grid.

Once you're registered your FiT payments are made quarterly, providing you give us regular meter readings.
