Feed In Tariff articles

Feed-in tariff (FiT) - A popular means of incentivising renewable energy technologies that was pioneered in Germany and has since been adopted in numerous countries around the world, FiT's help make renewable energy systems such as solar panels and wind turbines competitive by providing them with guaranteed above market price payments for the energy they produce. Advocates of the approach argue tariffs can be reduced over time as renewable energy technologies become cost-competitive with grid power, but critics maintain these subsidies add to costs for energy bill payers.
