How do I register for the Feed in Tariff (FiT)?

The Feed In Tariff scheme is closing

On 18 December 2018, the government announced their decision to close the FIT scheme to new applicants from 1 April 2019. Any applications for full accreditation which we receive on or before 31 March 2019 are unaffected by the closure of the FIT scheme. For any applications received after the 31 March 2019 but before the 1 April 2020, the installation must have been accredited on or before the 31 March 2019 and have an MCS certificate which was issued on or before 31 March 2019 to be eligible for the FIT scheme.

For any applications received after the 31 March 2019 and before the 1 April 2020, the installation much have been accredited prior to the 31 March 2019, to be eligible for the Scheme.

You can request a FIT application form by:

  • Phone - 0800 048 0520 or from a mobile 0330 100 7567  - We may monitor and/or record calls for security, quality or training purposes. Calling us on an 0800 number should be free from all mobiles and generally free from all landlines. Calling us on a 0330 number will cost you no more than 01 or 02 numbers from landlines or mobiles. If you get ‘inclusive minutes’ with your package, calls to a 0330 number will be part of these.
