Solar PV Feed In Tariffs

Solar PV Feed in Tariffs give anyone who generates their own electricity, the opportunity to earn an income for 20 years and to cut their energy bills. Feed in Tariff income is tax free for all domestic owner occupiers.

There are three ways to earn and save money from Solar PV Feed in Tariffs. The Generation Tariff, Export Tariff and Electricity Bill Savings.

  • The Generation Tariff pays you for each unit of electricity that is produced, regardless of whether it is used. The FIT pays 14.38p per unit of electricity generated for systems up to 4kWp, and 13.03p per unit for systems over 4kWp and up to 10kWp.

  • The Export Tariff pays an additional 4.77p for each unit of electricity that is not used and is exported back to the national grid.

  • Substantial Bill Savings are to be gained as the electricity that is generated can be used at the source, resulting in lower energy bills.

Find out what you could earn and save using our Solar PV Feed in Tariff Calculator.


How Much Can I Earn & Save with FITs?

The example below is based on a 2.5kWp system. At a cost of around £4,700, this system typically gives a return of £520 per year and will recover the cost of installation in around 9 years. This represents a Return on Investment of 11%.

Earnings & Savings Example

A typical 2.5kWp system can earn the following:
  • Generation Tariff = £312 per. year.
  • Export Tariff (extra 4.77p per. unit) = £52 per. year.
  • Electricity Bill Savings = £156 per. year.

Total Earnings per. year = £520.

Are Grants Available For Solar PV?

Up-front Government Grants for Solar Panels were discontinued in February 2010 and replaced by the Feed in Tariff in April 2010. The previous Grant scheme only covered a small percentage of the cost, but the Feed in Tariff allows you to recover the full cost of installation, typically in under 10 years and to receive a Return on Investment between 8% and 12%.
