If you have any of these domestic renewable technologies:
- Solar PV
- Wind turbines
- Anaerobic digestion
- Micro CHP generators
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 an additional payment for some of the surplus electricity they generate and export to the grid.
- 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 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 how much of the electricity you use on site.
If you're already registered for a Feed-in Tariff with us you can submit a meter reading. We'll then check all the details, validate your meter reading and make a payment in accordance with your statement of terms.
