Wind energy incentives and grants
UK Feed-In Tariffs (Clean Energy Cash Back)
Feed-In Tariffs (FIT) were introduced by the Government as a mechanism to scale up the deployment of renewable technologies and as a financial incentive to farmers, land owners, commercial and domestic electricity users in the UK for generating their own renewable energy.
Customers of small wind turbines who applied for FIT receive payments for every kWh of electricity that they generate, even if using the electricity themselves. In addition they also receive money for every kWh deemed as exported to the grid. The export is paid at 50% of your total generation.

This incentive offers customers a fantastic return on investment as well as protection from rising costs of electricity purchased from the grid.
How do the Feed-In Tariffs help?
The Tariffs have three financial benefits:
- A payment for all the electricity you produce, even if you use it yourself
- Additional payments for electricity you export to the grid or is deemed as export (50% of total generation)
- A reduction on your standard electricity bill, from using energy you produce yourself
Who is eligible?
Anyone who installs an approved wind turbine under the MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) can receive Feed in Tariff's provided the technology is installed and commissioned by an MCS certified installer.
