Feed-In Tariffs are paid for renewable electricity produced, plus a bonus for power exported
The Feed-In Tariffs are based on the electricity generated by a renewable energy system which is used in the property. There is also an additional bonus for any energy produced which is exported to the electricity grid. This means you get paid more for the energy you don’t use than for that which you do which encourages energy efficiency.
At times when you are producing less electricity than you are using, the shortfall will be imported from the grid and you will pay your electricity company for this in the usual way.
There’s a wealth of information on our site about the Feed-In Tariffs.
