Feed-in tariff incentives for PV solar panels and solar heating in the United Kingdom

There's no doubt that PV solar panels remain an exciting prospect for households looking for a permanent solution to the problem of expensive energy costs.

PV solar panels incentives.

"The current PV incentive scheme is on schedule to
end in 2020 to newer applicants."

Better sooner than later.

In previous years, the incentive for installing PV solar panels was the feed-in tariff scheme aka PV solar-gold rush 1.0.

Today, PV installation prices have halved since those days, and the outlook for UK energy prices look to go the same way as UK rail fares.

This situation has allowed the 'first' solar farm built without government subsidy help with more planned and equally astute homeowners are following in their footsteps too.

Questions about PV solar tariffs

Which type of tariff is best for me?

Because household needs across the United Kingdom may vary, there can be many factors, which decide suitability to a tariff. A free consultation may help determine which is best for you.

What other benefits are there?

Both tariffs are available for both domestic and commercial projects. are a significant investment opportunity for your protection from long-term escalating energy costs.

The income you receive from your panels incentives is tax-free.

In addition to the payments and energy savings, the scheme is designed to be index-linked which means the payment value will not be affected by inflation long-term.

The feed-in tariffs last for 20 years, however, both types of solar panels have a much longer lifespan, usually between 30-40 years, giving you a powerful way to protect your household from longer-term spiralling energy costs. You can make your money back in between 8-10 years and then enjoy the rest of the 20 years of tariff payments and free power.

How often will I receive the tariff payments?

These tariffs continue with your current energy supplier who will be sending you the payments and arranged for annual or quarterly payments. It is a great feeling to receive a cheque from your energy company.

What happens to the tariff if I move home?

Panels on your roof (as long as you own them) make your home extra more saleable. You can easily transfer the tariff over to your home's new owners with one phone call.

How are these funded?

Calculations show that income tax, VAT and corporation tax from the UK's solar panel industry brought in around 330m GBP last year, while the feed-in tariff scheme cost just 110m GBP.

Also, the government raises funds through both a small increase in electricity prices to the typical customer and further European funding. These expenditures are part of the money the government has already set aside to meet legally binding global warming obligations.

Who is doing this?

You may think that this technology is specifically a domestic technology, but there will be 13,000 installations and 110,000 installations in the commercial and public sector and supply twenty-five percent of the heating or power needed in these industries while creating 150,000 jobs by 2020.

Myth busted.

Figures from the Department of Climate and Energy show in 2008/9 Scotland, where the most significant adopters of solar panels, with Yorkshire, takes the title in 2010/11. This myth should finally put to bed the common misconception that this technology doesn't work well in the UK climate.
