Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) is a UK Government scheme designed to encourage uptake of a range of small-scale renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies.

Under FITs, you could be paid for the electricity you generate if you install or have installed an eligible system like solar PV, a wind turbine, hydro or micro CHP technology.

The UK Government's Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) makes the policy decisions about the FITs scheme and are the relevant contact for queries about legislation. The energy regulator Ofgem E-Serve administers the scheme.

The FIT scheme is closed to new applicants from 1 April 2019, barring some exceptions. Small installations need to be commissioned and have a Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certificate issued on or before the 31st March 2019. Applications for accreditation can be submitted to a FIT licensee by 31st March 2020. Read their FAQ and guidance document which explain the impact of these changes.
