If you generate your own electricity (eg with solar panels or a wind turbine) your energy supplier might pay you money. This is called a ‘Feed-in Tariff’ (FIT).
You’ll get a set amount for each unit (kilowatt hour or kWh) of electricity you generate. The rates vary depending on:
Contact installer companies or an electricity supplier for more information. You can receive payments from your current energy supplier, or you can choose a different one from the list of registered suppliers.
As well as the generation tariff, you can also sell any extra units you don’t use back to your electricity supplier. This is called an ‘export tariff’.
You’ll get 4.5p per unit of electricity:
If you applied for FIT before these dates you’ll continue to get 3.2p for each unit of electricity.
