If you install an electricity-generating technology from a renewable or low-carbon source such as
solar PV, the UK Government’s Feed-in Tariffs scheme (FITs) could mean that you get money
from your energy supplier.
You can be paid for the electricity you generate, even if you use it yourself, and for any surplus
electricity you export to the grid. And of course you’ll also save money on your electricity bill,
because you’ll be using your own electricity. Your energy supplier will make the FITs payments
For you to qualify for FITs, the installer and the products you use must both be certified under the
Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), Premier Energy Solutions are certified under MCS.
If you are eligible to receive FITs you will benefit in three ways:
- Generation tariff: your energy supplier will pay you a set rate for each unit (or kWh) of
electricity you generate. Once your system has been registered, the tariff levels are
guaranteed for the period of the tariff (up to 20 years) and are index-linked.
- Export tariff: you will get a further 4.77p/kWh from your energy supplier for each unit
you export back to the electricity grid, so you can sell any electricity you generate but
don’t use yourself. This rate is the same for all technologies. At some stage smart meters
will be installed to measure what you export, but until then it is estimated as being 50 per
cent of the electricity you generate (only systems above 30kWp need to have an export
meter fitted, and a domestic system is unlikely to be that big).
- Energy bill savings: you will be making savings on your electricity bills because
generating electricity to power your appliances means you don’t have to buy as much
electricity from your energy supplier. The amount you save will vary depending how
much of the electricity you use on site.

I recently had a new boiler installed by you. I just had to write and tell you how very pleased I am by your installers Craig and the other young man. They were very well mannered, helpful and clean workers. I cannot praise them enough.
I would like to take the opportunity on to thank everyone at Premier for the installation and work carried out by your team. The work was carried out efficiently, conscientiously and the job was left tidy, putting us at ease.
Premier has always carried out work to a high level and responded to any concerns and resolved any issues immediately. They have provided information and statistics where required and provided excellent customer service and satisfaction.
