Solar power is one of the fastest-growing energy sources in the UK. To encourage consumers to use environmentally-friendly renewable solar energy, the Government pay Feed-In Tariffs (FITs). From August 2012 onwards, how much each home receives is dependant on its Energy Efficiency Rating: those rated D or higher are guaranteed 20 years of tax-free index-linked payments of 15.44 pence per kWh produced, while less energy efficient homes can expect 7.1p p/kWh.
On top of this, any solar energy produced by your photovoltaic system, but not used, is exported back to the National Grid for a further fee of 4.64p per kWh.
Financial advisers on renewable energy suggest that a typical home with solar panels with an Energy Efficiency Rating of D or higher can expect a return of around £800 per annum from their solar installation.
Solar payments are linked to the retail price index, therefore will rise with inflation and real returns are expected to be around 8% in the first year. You could pay back the complete system in just 9 years.
You are also producing your own energy, so you can save up to 50% on energy bills.
The Government have announced that FiTs are to be cut again based on the volume of installations from August 2012 onward.
The term of the FiT has been cut from 25 years to 20 years, while payments are currently index linked, it is rumoured that this may be a change made in the next cut of FiTs
