What is the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) scheme?

As MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) accredited installers we are the ideal people to come to for advice on the Feed-in-Tariff scheme. The scheme is open to domestic and commercial users and makes payments for every kilowatt of electricity generated whether it is used or not providing the system has been fitted by an MCS accredited installer. It can return a guaranteed, tax free*, index linked annual financial income for 20 years, reducing your electricity bill and cutting your carbon emissions all at the same time. Feed-in-Tariff levels vary depending on the size of the installation. Ultimately, you are generating your own electricity free of charge and getting paid for doing it plus receiving payment for the electricity exported back to the grid.

*Tax free is subject to the size of a commercial system.

Are you eligible?

To ensure you are eligible for the lucrative Feed-in-Tariff payment an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required for the property where the panels are to be installed. Since 8th February 2016, the required EPC level D has to be met before the installation can take place and the solar PV panels will not be able to contribute to this rating. Most modern properties will meet this EPC band D requirement. Norcroft will organise the energy survey once the installation decision has been made.
