Sustainable Cupar - Renewables

Government schemes


Sustainable Cupar is raising awareness of Feed-In-Tariffs (FITs), which were introduced in April 2010 and support the installation of micro-renewable technologies (up to 5MW). The FITs have made it financially viable for many homeowners and landowners to install renewable technologies and not only save money, but make money on these installations.

The FIT’s support:

• Photovoltaics (PV), see below

• Wind

• Hydro

• Anaerobic Digestion

If you have a south-facing roof, which is not shaded by trees, buildings or other structures, then PV is definitely worth investigating. Residents living in listed properties or in conservation areas should speak to the Fife Council Development Services, as planning consent will probably be required. If you have a suitable roof space, but don’t have the money to invest in PV, there are companies who will install PV panels for free; you don’t have to pay for anything and will get free electricity. These companies get the generation tariff which pays for the panels, as well as making them a profit.

Renewable Heat Incentive

Sustainable Cupar encourages the use of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), which is a £800 million fund.

The RHI will support a range of technologies which the FIT currently do not support such as: 

  1. Biomass 
  2. Ground source heat pumps
  3. Air source heat pumps
  4. Solar thermal

The Energy Saving Trust can provide you with further information on these technologies. Click the link below for more information Energy Saving Trust:
