A feed-in tariff or FIT is a straightforward way to contract for renewable energy generation. It provides standardized program rules, prices and contracts.
The program is divided into two streams - FIT and microFIT. The FIT Program is for renewable energy projects that can generate more than 10 kilowatts (kW) of electricity. Very small projects, at a home or small business, that can generate 10 kW or less come under the microFIT Program.
