Feed In Tariffs

The information site for the new guaranteed payments for renewable electricity in the UK

Tariffs payable per kWh of electricity produced

The level of the generation tariff is dependent on the technology and the system size and type

Table of Feed-In Tariffs until 31st March 2014 and from 1st April 2014

This includes adjustments for degression, together with index linking effective up to April 2013 (PV tariffs were not index-linked in 2013 - why?).

Non-PV tariffs are valid 1st April 2013 to 31st March 2014 (last column 1st April 2014 to 31st March 2015); PV tariffs valid 1st January 2014 to 31st March 2014 (last column 1st April 2014 to 30th June 2014).

Historical and future tariffs

We used to publish helpful tables on historical and expected future tariff levels, but the government has made so many changes to the banding, degression intervals etc. that it's just too time consuming.

To try to be helpful (and show how complex the scheme has become), we offer you this page on Ofgem's website, where you can find links to the plethora of tariff tables.

Other benefits

These tables show only the generation tariff. The Feed-In Tariffs scheme also provides two further benefits: an additional payment for surplus energy exported to the grid (this is called the export tariff) and a saving on energy purchased from your electricity supplier.
