Feed-in Tariffs

Feed-in tariffs (also known as feed laws or FITs) are a policy mechanism designed to provide long-term contracts that establish a fixed price to producers of renewable energy and access to the grid. Feed-in tariffs can be supported by several funding mechanisms, including tax revenues, energy ratepayers’ revenues, and other programs. FITs can be paid to homeowners, business owners, renewable energy developers, tools, government agencies and others.
