A feed-in tariff (FIT) is an energy-supply policy focused on supporting the development of new renewable power generation. In the United States, FIT policies provide a guarantee to eligible renewable generators that their utility will be required to purchase either electricity, or both electricity and the renewable energy attributes. The FIT contract provides a guarantee of payments in dollars per kilowatt hour ($/kWh) for the full output of the system for a guaranteed period of time (typically 15-20 years).
