The Feed-in Tariffs Order 2018

08 January 2019

Coming into force on 1st february 2019 and affecting England, Scotland and Wales:

Closure of the FIT scheme

The Feed-in Tariffs scheme (FIT scheme) will be closed to new applicants from the 31st March 2019. This follows a government review in 2015 which decided that spending on new generation would cease in March 2019 to ensure that there would be no additional impact on energy bills from generation tariffs.  

The closure of the FIT scheme has no effect on currently accredited installations and generators will continue to receive payments until the end of their support in accordance with the existing rules.
