Who’s the Nominated Recipient?

As the owner of the generation system, you are the ‘generator’. If you choose to nominate somebody else to receive the tariff payments, they’re the ‘Nominated Recipient’ - we’ll need photo ID and they’ll need to sign the forms where required.

What’s my OS reference number and do you need it?

The OS reference is from an Ordnance Survey map. We only need this if your installation is linked to a property that doesn’t have a registered address or postcode, or is located somewhere without an address, such as a field. Ofgem needs to keep track of where the installation is, so this is done by OS reference.

How do I know if I’m on-grid or off-grid?

If you get electricity from the National Grid then you’re on-grid. If you live in a property with no electricity (other than what you generate) you are probably off-grid.

What type of export payment do I want?

You’ve got 3 options:

  • Deemed Export (most domestic customers): This is where we estimate the number of generated units you have put back into the National Grid – this is currently estimated at 50% of your total generated units, or 75% for hydro systems.
  • Metered Export: If you’ve got an installation of 30 kW or above you must have an export meter fitted. You can either get it fitted yourself – or ask us and we can give you more details about this process.
  • No Export: If you’re off-grid, this is the payment type for you. You’ll only receive payment for the energy you generate.

What declarations do I need to sign?

Most customers will need to tick boxes 1 and 6 and sign the corresponding declarations. In short, these declarations are:

  • Declaration 1: As long as your property has reached level D or above on its Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), you need to sign this declaration. 
  • Declaration 2: If your installation isn’t wired to an EPC-assessable building you need to sign declaration 2. 
  • Declaration 3: If your property hasn’t reached level D or above on its Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), you’ll need to sign this declaration. 
  • Declaration 4: If you’re applying on behalf of a school or community energy installation, sign this. 
  • Declaration 5: If you have more than 25 separate installations on separate properties, you’ll need to sign this one. 
  • Declaration 6: If you have less than 25 solar installations (16 solar panels on 1 roof is considered as 1 installation on the property), sign this.

Do you accept electronic signatures?  

No. You’ll need to sign copies of all relevant pages we've sent you before we can process your application. We can accept freehand signatures on the computer if your PDF viewer allows you to do this. Alternatively you can print off the application, sign the pages, then scan and email them to us at, or post them to us using the address on the forms. 
Ofgem is strict on their guidance and if we receive your application without your signature, your FIT won’t start until we’ve got your signatures.
