Solar Electric systems
There’s never been a better time to move toward sustainable living. Join the thousands of others across the UK who are capturing cleaner greener energy for their homes and cashing in on the excess energy via Feed-in-Tariff (FiT).
Installing a domestic solar electric system (also known as photovoltaics, or PV) will turn your home into your own personal solar power station, generating carbon free electricity to be used by you, or exported back to the national grid, adding to your financial return through Feed-in-Tariff payments.
Under the Feed- In-Tariff (FiT) you will be paid for each Kilowatt Hour of electricity that your system generates for the next 20 years. Presently this rate is 15.44p per KWh and this is set to stay in place until at least May 2013. You are also paid an additional 2.25p per KWh for units deemed to be exported back into the supply grid. These payments suggest that you can typically expect to get over a 14% return on your investment.
To get the most out of a solar system, your roof ideally must have a southerly facing aspect (although East and West facing roofs will also work) to get as much sunshine as possible during the day.
