Are you one of the many businesses generating small-scale low carbon electricity on your premises?

From 1st April 2010, EDF Energy became a mandatory Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) licensee. Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) have been launched by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), to make renewable generation more financially viable and help the UK’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions.

Latest Ofgem updates

Following the latest round of consultations, Ofgem have released a number of amendments to the Feed-in Tariffs Scheme. Please click here to review the latest updates.


Generate income, not just electricity

  • 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. If your installation is larger than 30kWh you will have the option of having a BSC Settled Export meter installed and be paid for metered export.
  • 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 your business generates electricity on a commercial scale (that's installations larger than 250KW and registered in the Renewable Obligation scheme) then EDF Energy PPAs are a great way to sell electricity you export to the grid, as well as your renewable energy certificates.

How it works

As a Feed-in Tariffs generator, you can enter into a contract with a fixed p/kWh rate for the energy you generate and in addition you will receive a p/kWh rate for the energy you export. The price we pay you is dependent on the installation's size and technology and is paid quarterly.

We pay you for every unit of electricity you generate and for energy you export. Feed-in Tariffs are for eligible generators with one of the following technologies:

  • Solar Photovoltaic
  • Wind Turbine
  • Anaerobic Digestion
  • Hydro
  • Micro CHP


Already registered for a Feed-in Tariff?

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.
