"Grid Parity" information
Feed-in Tariff, your financial advantage
Getting Paid to harvest your own Electricity and sell back to WindmillA Feed-in Tariff (FiT, feed-in law, advanced renewable tariff or renewable energy payments) is a policy mechanism designed to encourage the adoption of renewable energy sources and to help accelerate the move toward grid parity.
FiTs typically include three key provisions:
- guaranteed grid access
- long-term contracts for the electricity produced
- purchase prices that are methodologically based on the cost of renewable energy generation and tend towards grid parity.
Under a feed-in tariff, eligible renewable electricity generators (which can include homeowners and businesses) are paid a premium price for any renewable electricity they produce. Typically regional or national electric grid utilities are obligated to take the electricity and pay them.

As of 2009, feed-in tariff policies have been enacted in 63 jurisdictions around the world, including in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iran, Republic of Ireland, Israel, Italy, the Republic of Korea, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey and in some (nowadays, a dozen) states in the United States, and is gaining momentum in other regions as China, India and Mongolia.

Different tariff rates are typically set for different renewable energy technologies, linked to the cost of resource development in each case. The cost-based prices therefore enable a diversity of projects (wind, solar, etc.) to be developed while investors can obtain a reasonable return on renewable energy investments.
In 2008, a detailed analysis by the European Commission concluded that "well-adapted feed-in tariff regimes are generally the most efficient and effective support schemes for promoting renewable electricity". This conclusion has been supported by a number of recent analyses, including by the International Energy Agency, the European Federation for Renewable Energy, as well as by Deutsche Bank.
