Specialists in Solar Panel installation

A summary of the proposed Feed-in Tariff changes from the
1st August 2012

  • A reduced rate of 16p/kWh for solar PV installations less than 4kW on all installations.
  • All systems installed after 1st August 2012 will get 16p per unit, and will also need to have reached a certain level of Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before you qualify, that is an EPC rating of D or above, or to take up any measures cited in the EPC qualifying for Green New Deal funding.
  • We continue to strive to ensure that the customer achieves a return of 10% or more on their initial investment.

Additionally you'll get another 3p/kWh for every unit you export to the grid.
