Solar PV and Feed-in Tariffs
From 1st April 2010 those who generate electricity
through Solar PV panels receive payments from energy
suppliers. The scheme guarantees a minimum payment for all
electricity generated by the system, a separate payment for any
excess electricity exported to the grid and savings made on bills.
The payments you are eligible to receive vary depending on system
size and when it is installed. The payments are index linked
and are guaranteed for 25 years. See here for further information.
With the introduction of Feed-in-Tariffs there are a number of
organisations offering customers the opportunity to have free solar
PV panels instead of the homeowner buying the
panels. Please see further information.
