Solar panels with export tariffs

How to claim the export tariffs for solar panels. What do Birmingham City Council and farmers have in common?

They’re solar panel adopters who use solar energy for a steady financial income. Export tariffs once known as feed-in tariffs have seen uptake increase so much. The current PV export tariff pays around 5.44 pence per Kilowatt Hour.

The feed-in tariff incentive will be guaranteed for 20-40 years of operational service life.

Michael Eavis from Glastonbury Festival fame has been demonstrating his solar panels.

The most significant private PV solar array in the United Kingdom. The installation adorns his cowsheds and covers roughly three tennis courts in size. He believes so firmly in solar panels and the benefits of the investment with the feed-in tariff scheme that his calculations are straightforward.

Average sunshine rates and a guaranteed price for the energy that produces give him a sizable income per year and a quick payback of around ten years.

A PV system lasts 25-40 years. So, it’s time for homeowners to consider investing and generate, consume, battery store, and earn.

Birmingham City Council is getting in on the act. Adding solar panels to its 10,000 housing stock will undoubtedly set other councils into adoption.

It’s great that the solar revolution has finally begun. The upshot of this feed-in frenzy means homeowners could benefit alongside councils. As adoption figures grow, the competition within the energy sectors and PV export tariffs to entice self-generators.

Most people have the roof space to take advantage of.

Join the generation tariff’s revolution.
