The Feed-in Tariff: Steps To Take
Well you will need an additional electricity meter to that which you already have in your house. The purpose of this is simply to enable the measurement of the electricity that your microgeneration project is itself generating, and also to be able to measure what amount of this is being put back into the electricity grid - the 'feed-in'.
Once your technology is in place, you'll get registered in a feed-in tariff database by the installer which gets you the certificate, that you then provide to the energy supplier you use.
They then check this against the database to ensure that you are eligible. There are various energy suppliers in the UK who can provide feed in tariffs.
