Feed-in Tariffs

The UK Government launched the Feed-in Tariff or Clean Energy Cashback Scheme with effect from 1 April 2010. The feed-in tariff is tax free payment and means you are paid a set amount per kWh of electricity produced which is index linked to inflation for both commercial and domestic installations.

Who is eligible?
All PV installations under 5MW, private and commercial are eligible. On the commercial side, the feed-in tariff encourages photovoltaic (PV) installations among farmers, rural businesses, small and medium enterprises.

NB: The tariff period is currently 20 years. In addition to achieve the feed-in tariff rates as detailed above the evidence of property’s EPC rating will be required when applying. If no evidence showing the EPC has a band D or higher then a lower rate will apply.

You are also eligible to receive an additional fixed payment for each kWh that is exported to the grid (not applicable to systems not connected to the grid). This is called the export tariff and is currently 4.64p as at May 2013. This payment will also increase in line with inflation.

How is it be implemented?
Ofgem administer the feed-in tariff. Power companies are responsible for paying the feed-in tariff to their customers, normally on a quarterly basis.

How to gain access to the Feed-in Tariff
As an MCS Installer, the Smart Green Energy Company are are required to input details of all installations into a central MCS Database. The database generates an MCS Certificate with a unique certificate number which is then sent direct to the customer. The customer will require this certificate to gain access to the Feed-in Tariff.

The tariffs available and the process for receiving them vary, depending on when the technology was installed, and whether the system and the installer were certificated under the MCS scheme.

You will qualify for the full FIT payments if:

1.The technology was installed between 15th July 2009 and 31st March 2010 and you transferred to FITs before 1st April or
2. It is installed after 1st April 2010 using an MCS* certificated product and installer.
