The following Environment guidance note Produced in partnership with Clyde & Co provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Feed-in-Tariffs (FiTs) are a support payment for electricity generated from low-carbon sources. They consist of guaranteed payments for a fixed period of time, to producers of small-scale low-carbon electricity, paid per kilowatt hour (p/kWh). FiTs are paid by electricity suppliers, who pass the additional cost on to their customers, so the additional cost of renewable electricity is spread over the entire electricity market.
See Practice Note: Feed-in tariff (FiT)—key features for wider information on the FiT scheme and the LexisPSL Feed-in tariff scheme tracker which displays the current status and most recent developments in relation to the scheme, covering consultations, regulatory guidance publications and key amendments to the FiT scheme. For Ofgem's guidance on the ROO-FiT accreditation process see: Ofgem: Essential Guide to applying for ROO-FiT accreditation.
On 19 July 2018, BEIS confirmed (as anticipated) that the FiT will close to new accreditation applications from 1 April 2019 (although in certain circumstances the deadline is in fact earlier or later). For a detailed explanation of how the closure of the FiT will work, the background to this announcement, and issues associated with it, see Practice Note: Feed-in tariffs (FiT)—closure in 2019 and the future for small-scale low-carbon generation. Projects that have accredited prior to the relevant deadline will not be directly impacted.
