Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) is a UK Government scheme designed to encourage uptake of a range of small-scale renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies.

Under FITs, you could be paid for the electricity you generate if you install or have installed an eligible system like solar PV, a wind turbine, hydro or micro CHP technology.

The UK Government's Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) makes the policy decisions about the FITs scheme and are the relevant contact for queries about legislation. The energy regulator Ofgem E-Serve administers the scheme.

On 19 July 2018, BEIS published a consultation in which they state their intention to close the FIT scheme to new applicants from 1 April 2019, barring several exceptions.
