To ensure that you are paid the correct amount, you will need to provide us with a Valid Meter Reading. We will contact you prior to this date in order to understand your requirements for the following year. We will only make Export Payments where we have received a Valid Meter Reading within your Reading Window.

  7. Generation Tariff Payments

    The Generation Tariff and the Generation Tariff Payments will be made in accordance with information held on the Central FIT Register.

    We will make Generation Tariff Payments to You in accordance with rates published by the Authority, as amended from time to time. If this happens, We will inform You in Your next payment statement and Your payment will be adjusted to reflect this change. 

    Where We have received a valid meter reading within the required timescales, We will send You a Generation Tariff Payment using the payment method details shown on Your FIT Plan. Your Generation Tariff Payment is due to You every three months, subject to Us receiving valid meter readings within the required timescales. 

    VAT is not applicable to electricity generated by Your Generation Unit (s).

    If You dispute a payment statement, please contact Us immediately and We will work with You to try and resolve the issue. If We are notified by the Authority that You are suspended or removed from the Central FIT Register We will cease Generation Tariff Payments until We are notified to recommence by the Authority.

You are then responsible for declaring and paying the VAT shown on the self-billing invoice to HMRC on the relevant due dates. We will not be held responsible for any failure on your part to declare the VAT shown on the self-billed invoice as your output tax at the correct time.

  10. Metering

    10.1     If we think your Generation Meter is faulty we may choose to test it. If the test confirms that your meter is not working correctly you must arrange for the meter to be replaced as soon as reasonably possible. You will not be entitled to any further FiT Payments until this is done. It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for any replacement Generation Meter, in addition to any costs associated with installing it.

    10.2     If your Generation Meter/Export Meter is broken or the screen is not readable you must notify us immediately. You will only be entitled to FiT Payments up until the last actual known reading. You are responsible for arranging for the Generation Meter to be replaced as soon as reasonably possible. You will not be entitled to any further FiT Payments until this is done. It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for any replacement Generation Meter, in addition to any costs associated with installing it.

    10.3     If your Generation Meter/Export Meter is capable of recording the readings by automatic means you may be entitled to FiT Payments based on these readings. However, this is at our discretion and you are still responsible for arranging for the Generation Meter to be replaced as soon as reasonably possible if broken. You may not be entitled to any further FiT Payments until this is done. It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for any replacement Generation Meter in addition to any costs associated with installing it. Where we have fitted the Export Meter we will be responsible for those costs. Where you have fitted the Export Meter, or arranged for it to be fitted by your installer, you will be responsible for all costs associated with it.
