On this page you'll find the most recent tariff tables for the Feed-In tariff scheme. Feed-in-Tariff rates vary with the amount of electricity that the system will be able to produce and the type of technology generating the electricity.
There is some confusion currently about the tariffs partly due to the recent Solar PV Feed-in-Tariff Changes. As a result we have created some tables to help you to understand the Feed-in-Tariff for each eligible technology.
Solar PV Feed-in-Tariff Table:
This table shows the current rates published by Ofgem for solar PV installations registered between now and the 1st May 2013, when the rate will next be reviewed:
The export tariff has been raised from 3.1p/kWh to the current rate of 4.5p/kWh.
The tariff is available to a period of 20 years from registration of the system and is linked to the Retail Price Index (RPI).
Feed-in-Tariff Rates for Non Solar PV Technologies:
This table lists the current tariff rates for the other technologies that are eligible for the Feed-in-Tariff. The tariff band is based on the generating capacity of the installation.
Export rates for all non-solar PV technologies were set at 4.5p/kWh from the 1st December 2012. There are no plans to introduce tariff bands dependent on your EPC rating for any of the non-solar PV technologies.
- What happens to the Feed-In Tariff payments if I move home?
- Ownership of the technology is linked to the site and, therefore, in the case where building or home ownership changes, the ownership of the technology would also transfer to the new owner and so would the Feed-In Tariff payments. .
- What's the Generation Tariff?
- You earn a fixed income for every kilowatt hour of electricity you generate and use in your property.
- What's the Export Tariff?
- You earn an additional fixed income for every kilowatt hour of electricity you generate and sell back to the grid.
- Will I be eligible to receive the tariff if I move into a home that already has an electricity generating technology fitted to it?
- Feed-In Tariff eligibility remains with the installation, even if the ownership of the home or generating technology changes. Therefore the technology must have been eligible before you move in, even if it is not registered yet.
