Will I be eligible for a Feed-in Tariff if I move into a house that already has a system that generates electricity?
Owning a home doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get Feed-in Tariff payments. That’s because sometimes a previous owner or the company that installed a system still owns it. So you’ll need to show us proof that you own it before we can pay you.
If you’re thinking about buying a property which already has a renewable technology system, you should get some independent legal advice to check who owns it. And if you’re looking at renting somewhere with a system installed, talk to your landlord about who gets the Feed-in Tariff payments.
If you move into a house and you’re eligible for the Feed-in Tariff, you’ll need to fill in a change of ownership form then either email it to us at Feedintariffs@EDFEnergy.com or post it to Green Hub, EDF Energy, Gadeon House, Grenadier Road, Exeter EX1 3UT.
What happens to my Feed-in Tariff if I sell my house?
You should get independent legal advice if you’re selling (or buying) a house which has a renewable energy system. But as a general rule, the Feed-in Tariff will pass to the new owner of the house.
If you’re selling yours, you’ll need to fill in a change of ownership of solar panels form then either email it to us at Feedintariffs@EDFEnergy.com or post it to Green Hub, EDF Energy, Gadeon House, Grenadier Road, Exeter EX1 3UT.
You can keep ownership of your Feed-in Tariff, even if you sell your house. But you need to make arrangements to make sure you meet your contractual obligations. Check your Statement of Terms to find out what these are.
If I change my electricity supplier, do I need to move my Feed-in Tariff to them?
It’s up to you. You can still keep your Feed-in Tariff with us even if you move your electricity account to someone else. But if you want to move your Feed-in Tariff to the new company as well, you’ll need to contact them and ask them how to do this.
