Wind Turbine - Feed in Tariff

The Feed in Tariff (FiT) is a Government incentive, to encourage both commercial and domestic customers to generate electricity from renewable sources, and reward them for doing so. The FiT came into force on April 1st 2010, the amount paid to the consumer depends on a number of factor, detailed in the table below. This type of scheme has been running successfully in Germany for several years.
To provide an initial boost to the industry the government has launched the FiT on a very generous basis. The FiT rewards the system owner by paying them for every unit of electricity generated. The electricity generated also supplements the use in the property so the bill payer saves again through needing to purchase less electricity. Over the coming years as installation volumes increase and costs reduce the government intend on reducing the tariff to new entrants to maintain a constant return on investment.  The next planned FiT review is April 2012.
The table below outlines the relevant generation tariff for the type of wind turbine installation and also outlines the period for which the tariff is guaranteed.
