Solarplicity Update: those customers with a registered Feed-In Tariff (FIT) previously with Solarplicity will need to approach a new FIT licensee (a new supplier) to continue to receive FIT payments or register with EDF Energy. Please see below to register for Feed-in Tariff. For other information head to our help and advice page.

Please be aware that the Feed-in Tariff scheme closed on 31st March 2019. You can read more about it here. If you're already a FIT customer, you won't be affected by the scheme closure.

What's it all about?

EDF Energy is a Mandatory FIT Licensee

If you install technology that generates electricity from a renewable source you may be eligible for one of the Government incentives which support or reward you for the energy you generate. The Solar Feed-in Tariff is currently the most common type allowing users who produce electricity via solar PV panels to save money on their electricity bills, as well as receiving additional payment for some of the surplus electricity they generate and export to the grid.

Benefits of a Feed-in Tariff

  • Generation tariff: Your energy supplier will pay you a set rate for each unit (or kWh) of electricity you generate. Once your system has been registered, the tariff levels are guaranteed for the period of the tariff (up to 20 years) and are index-linked.
  • Export tariff: You will get a further amount from your FIT Licensee for the energy you export back to the electricity grid.
  • Energy bill savings: You will be making savings on your electricity bills because generating electricity to power your appliances means you don’t have to buy as much electricity from your energy supplier. The amount you save will vary depending on how much of the electricity you use on-site.

Deemed to metered

In the UK, the government plans to install smart meters in all homes across England, Scotland and Wales by 2020 and these will provide consumers with greater information on their use of energy
