Details

The FITs scheme is intended to replace, not supplement, public grant schemes as the principal means of incentivising small scale, low-carbon electricity generation. Because of this, and to ensure value for money for consumers and compliance with EU law on state aids, it is generally not possible for a generator to benefit from both FITs and a grant from a public body except in specific circumstances.
