The Benefits of Solar PV
Here's what Solar PV could do for you:
- You get paid for the electricity you generate and don't use The Government's feed-in-tariff pays a set rate per kWh of electricity generated and an additional rate for any exported back to the national grid.
- Receive a tax free income The feed-in tariff is guaranteed by the Government for 20 years and will rise in line with inflation.
- Reduce your carbon footprint Clean energy means you reduce your carbon emissions by up to 1 tonne per annum.
- Produce energy even on cloudy days Panels designed for European countries simply need day light to produce electricity.
Benefits of Solar Thermal
Here's what Solar Thermal could do for you:
- You get paid for the hot water you generate Your solar thermal installation will be eligible for the Government Renewable Heat Incentive – that is a tax free, index-linked payment for seven years.
- Save on energy bills Hot water produced by solar thermal panels offsets the cost of energy that you would otherwise use to heat the water.
- Reduce your carbon footprint Nothing is burned therefore offsetting any carbon dioxide that would have otherwise been produced.
- Heated water for 365 days a year When solar energy is minimal during the winter months a conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to supplement your hot water.
Feed-in Tariff for Solar PV
Domestic solar installations up to 10kW in size will receive a FiT rate of 3.79p/kWh from 1 January to 31 March 2019, after which degressions will continue to occur every quarter.
The export tariff currently sits at 5.24p/kWh.
RHI for solar thermal installations
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a quarterly payment over seven years to households who have installed solar thermal systems. The current rate sits at 20.66p/kWh for solar thermal applications.
