Feed-in Tariff for businesses

What are business Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs)?

  • Cashback for generating green electricity
  • Financial incentive for commercial businesses who have installed their own renewable or low-carbon electricity-generating technologies
  • UK Government backed scheme also known as Clean Energy Cashback

The Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme closed to new applicants on 1st April 2019. Read more about the FiT scheme on the Ofgem website.

If you're not already registered for FiT, but you have installed renewable or low carbon technology, you may be able to apply for the Smart Export Guarantee.

FiT closure information

The Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme closed to new applicants on 1 April 2019. If you're already registered for FiT, this won't affect you. FiT applications that were received before 31 March 2020 can still be processed provided there is space for the installation in the relevant deployment cap. This limits the number of installations that can register during a particular three-month period and is monitored by Ofgem.
