The Feed-in Tariff (FIT) is another government scheme designed to reward those who implement renewable energy sources into their home. If you install renewable energy systems in your home, you will benefit from reduced energy bills as you use the energy that you generate yourself. However, you can benefit even further through the FIT scheme, as you can be paid for every unit of energy that your renewable systems generate, and then you can be paid even more for any electricity that you don’t use that goes right back into the national grid.
Applications for the FIT scheme ended on the 31st of March 2019, but this does not mean that any payments for those already on the scheme will stop.
Your installer will be able to give you a quote regarding how much you should expect to earn from the FIT scheme with your system, and they will ensure that you meet all of the eligibility requirements. You can then apply to your electricity provider or a different one if you choose.
However, solar PV is not the only supported system, and you may be eligible if you have a wind turbine, micro CHP, hydroelectric system or even an anaerobic digester. The efficiencies of these systems are heavily dependent on your home’s location and surroundings, and so you will need to make sure that your site is suitable before you choose to install any of them.
Similar to the RHI scheme, you will be paid an amount that depends on the volume of electricity that you generate from your renewable system as well as the date that you apply. You must ensure that your system is fully installed before you apply for the FIT scheme. If you are using a solar PV system, the amount you will be paid depends on another factor – the energy rating of your home. You can be paid a higher rate if your Energy Performance Certificate is rated D or better.
I had boiler replaced two weeks ago , everything went smoothly as I have been expecting, engineers came on site spot on time everything boiler is working good , place left tidy , i am impressed with Company Warma , definitely would give 5 star
Don’t often do reviews but felt this warranted one. A little slow getting the fitting date sorted out but once this had been sorted everything was plain sailing from start to finish. Can’t fault the engineer who fitted my combi boiler. Nothing was to much trouble to him, explained everything has he went along. Would recommend without hesitation.
The old boiler and tank were removed and the new condensing boiler fitted by the two installers from XL Heating. They were friendly, informative and tidy, working well as a team for two days.
So far very happy.
