Welcome to the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) application form
About Feed-in Tariffs
Feed-in Tariffs (FITS) are a scheme, set up by the Government offering customers a financial incentive for generating their own electricity through domestic renewable technologies, including:
- Solar Photovoltaic (PV)
- Wind turbines
- Anaerobic digestion
- Micro CHP generators
Scheme Closure Notice
Please be aware that due to the closure of the Feed in Tariff scheme, all systems must be commissioned on or before 31st March 2019 to be eligible. The scheme has limited capacity and you can read more about it here.
If your installation is above 30kwh you can apply for the Export Tariff. To do this you need to fill in section 5 of this form.

The form should only take a few minutes to complete. Throughout the application you will be asked for the following information, so having this to hand will help speed up the process:

- post the form to The Net Zero Hub team, EDF, Sunderland, SR43 4E.
What happens once you’ve submitted your application?
Once we receive your application, it will be reviewed and submitted onto the central FIT register, which is administered by Ofgem. Ofgem will then contact us to inform us that the installation is registered. We will then send you our FiTS Statement of Terms which will detail the terms and conditions between you and EDF and all the necessary information you will need for the duration of the contract. Please review the Statement of Terms and sign and post it back to us at: The Net Zero Hub team, EDF, Sunderland, SR43 4E.
Once your installation is signed up to FITs we will back date your payments to the date we received the completed form. This will become your eligibility date.

Off-grid relates to an installation site which doesn't receive an electricity supply from the national grid and which cannot export to a local distribution network. If this is the case, you won't be entitled to export payments and you must declare that all electricity generated is used onsite for your own consumption.
If your property is commercial your MPAN will be in the 'DNO details' section of your electricity invoice, or if your property is residential it will be in the 'About Your Charges' section of your invoice.
