Solar PV

Designed, installed, commissioned and handed over by our own team.

Our projects have included domestic dwellings, new builds, schools, farms and golf clubs. Sizes have ranged from 2 panel systems to over 100 panels. We have a structural engineer to advise on the suitability of the roof and can appoint an EPC company to certify the premises so that you can obtain the Feed In Tarriff rates.

How The Feed In Tarriff Works

If you are eligible to receive FITs you will benefit in three ways:

Generation tariff: your energy supplier will pay you a set rate for each unit (or kWh) of electricity you generate. Once your system has been registered, the tariff levels are guaranteed for the period of the tariff (up to 20 years) and are index-linked.

Export tariff: you will get a further 4.64p/kWh from your energy supplier for each unit you export back to the electricity grid, so you can sell any electricity you generate but don't use yourself. This rate is the same for all technologies. At some stage smart meters will be installed to measure what you export, but until then it is estimated as being 50% of the electricity you generate (only systems above 30kWp need to have an export meter fitted, and a domestic system is unlikely to be that big).

Energy bill savings: you will be making savings on your electricity bills because generating electricity to power your appliances means you don’t have to buy as much electricity from your energy supplier. The amount you save will vary depending how much of the electricity you use on site.
