Feed In Tariffs

Information on payments for renewable electricity in the UK. Infrequently updated

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 before and after end 2016

This includes adjustments for degression, and index linking.

Future tariffs may be adjusted for contingent degression. Indicative tariffs after 1st Apr 2017 should be as per the degression table, but adjusted for RPI indexation and contingent degression - see latest tariffs from Ofgem here.

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.

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.
