In our mission to help our customers save money and be more energy efficient we are a supplier of the Government’s Feed In Tariff scheme.
Introduced in 2010, the Feed In Tariff scheme pays homeowners to make their own energy from renewable sources such as solar power, wind turbines and hydropower. The scheme is part of the Government’s target to produce 15% of the UK’s electricity from renewable sources by 2020.
Once you have your own generation equipment installed, our Feed In Tariff scheme pays you for every kWh of electricity you make from your renewable generator. For information on the tariff rates for the Feed In Tariff scheme, please visit Ofgem’s website.
If you are a First Utility customer but have already registered for the Feed in Tariff scheme with another supplier, you are not required to transfer your FITs to First Utility. However if you still want to switch your FITs you can find our switching suppliers form here. If you want to discuss switching with us us please email email@example.com or call 01926 328006 to discuss the matter.
Join our Feed In Tariff scheme
If your generating equipment was fitted before the 15th January 2016 we'll need to have your completed generator application form and MCS certificate by 31st March 2016 to qualify for the Feed In Tariff scheme. If your application was commissioned before 15th January 2016, but wasn't received by us by 31st March 2016 it won't be part of the Feed In Tariff scheme and you won't receive payment for any generation.
If you'd like to be paid to make your own energy and to sell some of it back to the electricity grid, it’s easy to register for the scheme. Simply follow these steps.Step 1 - Read the small print
