Solar Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
Helping you understand your homes energy efficiency performance
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) enable you to understand your home’s current energy efficiency performance by measuring the energy use and carbon dioxide emissions to provide you with a rating (A – G). The report also gives helpful advice on how you could improve this rating – helping you save money on your energy bills
How to get your EPC for Solar PV
In order to benefit from the higher rate Feed-in Tariff (FIT) you will need to provide an Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) rating of band D or above. Energy assessors are specially trained to complete an EPC for you, as well as advise you on ways to heat your home more efficiently to help you save electricity.
Gain the higher rate of FiT
An energy assessor will carry out an Energy Performance Report which will give you an indication of your home’s current rating and when you install solar PV panels you’ll be provided with an up to date EPC – and if you need more than solar PV to get to a band D you’ll also be advised what product will be able to help you achieve this, for example by installing loft and cavity wall insulation or ‘A’ rated boilers along with a range of other products.
