How can we help?

The Feed in Tariff scheme

We choose to be part of the Government’s Feed In Tariff scheme, because we believe in saving you money where we can. If you’re a homeowner, you can produce your own energy from renewable sources such as solar power, wind turbines and hydropower. You can find the best place to buy solar panels on any switching site, and when you join the scheme, you’ll be paid for each unit of electricity you produce.

You can use your own generated electricity to power your home and if you make more than you need, you’ll get paid for every extra unit. If you generate less than you need, you can buy extra energy from us.

If you’re already registered for the FIT scheme with another supplier, you don’t need to transfer your FIT scheme to us. But, if you want to transfer, fill out our form here.

For information on the tariff rates for the Feed In Tariff scheme, please visit Ofgem’s website.

Is there anything I need before I qualify for the scheme?

To qualify, you’ll need to have a generation meter fitted and use a MCS (Micro-generation Certification Scheme) accredited installer. Forward your completed Generation Agreement, Declarations, proof of ownership, MCS certificate and the EPC (for solar only) to us.

You can find more information about this on the MCS website, here.  If you’re installing solar panels, you’ll also need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for more information about how to get this, click here.

How do I register for the FIT scheme?

If you’d like to start getting paid to make your own energy and to sell some of it back to the electricity grid, find out how to register here.

Important: The FITs scheme has now changed to be in line with new regulations. Click here for more information.

What are the FIT tariffs?

This depends on the technology, its size and the date that the technology is installed. The most important part to remember is that the tariff will be fixed for a given number of years once the micro-generation is registered.
