Getting Paid for Generating Electricity

So, what has been going on?

All new technology markets evolve in much the same way with the early adopters being rewarded for taking higher risks. As demand has picked up solar hardware prices have softened; the cost of market entry has fallen thus broadening the potential customer base. A 4kW solar PV system would have cost over £15,000 six months ago. Today our Best Value Brand equivalent costs no more than £8,000+VAT!

This is why we're able to supply 'best value brand' PV systems at prices that still deliver an annual 10% income stream for suitable installation sites. If you've missed the first boat make sure you don't miss the second!

FIT Overview

Solar PV Investors are rewarded in three ways via the Solar PV Feed-In-Tariff [FIT]:

Generation Tariff - up to 13.39 pence per kWh generated (2015/16)
Export Tariff - a fixed 3.1 pence per kWh exported to the Grid (2011/12*)
Lower Electricity Bills - consuming self-generated electricity reduces consumption of commercially generated electricity.
