Comparing Export Purchase Contracts

By this point in time we have all heard of the Feed-in-Tariff and that we can actually get paid for the energy we produce on site and feed back into the national grid. However, did you know that you do not have to take a supply grid contract with the company that supplies your electricity?

Comparing supply grid contracts should be a top priority if you are looking to generate extra income from electricity you’ve produced and are feeding back into the grid. Big Green Switch can help you determine which supplier offers you the best and most reliable supply grid contracts on the market today.

Here are a few things you should consider when comparing supply grid contracts:

  • How long will a supplier take to register your power generator for the scheme?
  • How long will it take them to notify you?
  • When and how often will you get paid by that particular supplier?
  • How often will meter readings be necessary?
  • How will you be paid?
  • Does that supplier have a large or small FIT team?

Bear in mind that no two suppliers will give you exactly the same terms. At the moment, all rates for feeding into the grid are the same from one supplier to the next, but some are known to have terrible customer service.

You may be getting the best electricity tariffs but will your current supplier give you the care and service you require when participating in the FIT scheme? Big Green Switch can help you compare supply grid contracts, so don’t settle for anything less than the best in customer service and reliability.
