Feed-in Tariffs (FITs)
If you install electricity generating technology from a renewable or low carbon source (e.g. wind turbines or solar PV), you may be able to get money from your energy supplier through the UK Government's Feed-In Tariffs subsidy (FITs).
Through FITs, you can be paid for electricity you generate (even if you use it yourself) and any surplus electricity you export to the National Grid. You also save money on your electricity bill because you are using your own electricity.
See the Energy Saving Trust website for more information on the Feed-in Tariffs scheme.
