The Feed-in Tariff (FiT) is a Government scheme to encourage people to generate their own low-carbon energy.
As well as saving by generating your own electricity, we'll also pay you for the electricity you generate. The scheme is also sometimes referred to as Clean Energy Cashback.
British Gas is a mandatory Feed-in Tariff licensee.
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.
FiT means you could be paid for the next 20 years for the electricity you generate from a renewable source. And remember, any payments are in addition to the savings you'll make by not having to buy all your electricity from your supplier.
Your FiT payments are made quarterly, providing you give us regular meter readings.
