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

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're also paid for the electricity you don’t use that’s exported to the grid.

FiT payments are made quarterly, based on your meter readings.

How do I register for the Feed-in Tariff?

The Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme is closing to new applicants from 1st April 2019. This does not affect installations which are already registered for FiT. See Ofgem announcement.

FiT applications can still be processed up to 31st March 2020 provided:

  • Installations up to and including 50kW have been commissioned and have a Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certificate that was issued on or before 31st March 2019.
  • 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

Your business can register for FiT by filling in our application form (PDF, 125kb).

You can also apply for an existing British Gas Feed-in Tariff to be registered in your name, by filling in our change of ownership form.

And you can switch your business Feed-in Tariff payments to British Gas by filling in our switch request form.

Once you've filled in the relevant form, scan and email your documents to us at feedintariff@britishgas.co.uk.
