If I install Photovoltaic panels, will Bulb pay me for the surplus electricity I generate. If so, how much and for how long?

@FrancisB, Bulb is a FiT licensee, so you’d get standard FiT rates:

Thanks @mowcius, @FrancisB if those rates are what you’re looking for then you can sign up to get your FiT payments from Bulb through https://help.bulb.co.uk/hc/en-us/articles/115003599871-I-have-solar-panels-Can-I-get-my-FIT-payments-from-Bulb-

David at Bulb.

When I joined Bulb I was told that you did not accept a FIT transfer, so I stayed with my old firm.

Also when changing suppliers and wish them to take on the FIT you have to send all the original paperwork for solar to them.

@Peter_H We have only fairly recently been offering the FiT so let us know if you would be interested in switching your FiT payments to us.

Dan,

Thanks for the info. I have only been with you since August. I really see no point in changing this over. I would have thought that the Government would have paid it direct.

How do you pay FIT. I currently get FIT from British Gas who pay by cheque, and even when I was a BG customer for energy paying by DD still paid my FIT by cheque. My preferred option would be a direct transfer to my bank account.

@KenV We can add it to your Bulb account or refund it to your bank account.

@“DanP at Bulb” Would you please let me have details of how I go about transferring across to Bulb for payment of my FIT payments.

@“DanP at Bulb” Sorry ignore my previous post, I see the link is further up this discussion.

Do bulb rent solar panels?

Hi @sam No, this isn’t something that we do at the moment :slight_smile:
