We are entering an exciting era of smart use of energy. Everyone of us can play a part – big or small – in combating climate change. Sign up for the Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariff (FiT) Scheme today and build a sustainable future together.
To watch the full version about Renewable Schemes, please click
You can take part in the scheme by installing a solar and/or wind power renewable energy system on your premises. Once the system is successfully connected to the CLP grid, you can earn FiT payments.
For more information about the solar energy generation, please visit
Solar Energy Information page.
CLP will buy the electricity generated by your renewable energy system at a FiT rate and the amount will be reflected in your regular electricity bills.
Three types of FiT rates will be offered according to the generation capacity of your renewable energy system:
Capacity of the Renewable Energy System
(per unit of electricity -kWh)^
≤ 10 kW
> 10 kW - ≤ 200 kW
> 200 kW - ≤ 1MW
^The rates listed above are effective from 1 Oct 2018 onwards and will be reviewed regularly.
A solar system comprises three major components:
A solar system with a generation capacity of about 1kW in Hong Kong can generate around 1,000 units of electricity a year.
