Changes to the Feed in Tariff

Great news for householders who are looking at ways to reduce their energy bills and their carbon footprint. It has recently been announced that the higher rate of 43p/KWh for the next 25 years is likely be honoured for those installation of solar photovoltaics (PV) system which are registered before 3 March 2012.

Those who register on or after 3 March will qualify for the higher rate until 1 April, when it will drop to 21p/KWh.

Solar PV systems are a great way of generating your own electricity and gaining an income from the electricity you have generated. Solar PV captures the Suns energy and converts this energy into electricity. A typical home solar PV system will help you reduce your environmental footprint and could save over a tonne of CO2 per year.

At the current higher rate a typical solar PV system with an installation size of 3KWp can save you around £670 per year, which is made up of the generation tariff at 43p/KWh, export tariff of 3p/KWh and the savings you will make on your electricity bills.

Time is of the essence and there are many options that need to be considered and we are sure you have many questions you would like to ask, so why not visit the St Ives Green House to see a solar PV system in situ and learn more about the changes to the feed in tariff.
