Get Paid To Go Green!
Do you want to reduce your carbon footprint and energy bills, and earn some extra income? When you generate your own energy, you don’t just save money by not having to buy that energy – you can also get paid for the energy you produce!
Feed-in tariffs (FITs) are part of a Government scheme that pays people back for creating their own ‘green electricity’. This means that you will receive a payment of 43.3p per kWh for the electricity that you generate from your solar PV system, even if you use all the electricity yourself. You will also receive additional bonus payments of 3p per unit for electricity that you export into the grid.
Any income received through your feed-in tariff is also tax free and indexed linked so your tariff rate will increase with inflation. You will also benefit further due to the inevitable electricity price rises.
The feed-in tariff rate of 43.3p per kWh is only available until April 2012, after that it will decrease slightly year on year. If you install before April 2012 you will receive the rate of 43.3p for the duration of 25 years. Contact us now to beat the deadline!
A typical example of what you could earn:
For a 3-4 bedroom house installed with a 4 kWp solar PV system, you could expect to earn about £1400 per year from the electricity you have generated. In addition you would save around £190 off your electricity bill, giving you a total annual benefit of around £1600. The total benefit after 25yrs would be over £40,000, so as you can see with a system installation cost of £10,000 – £13,000 this makes an attractive propostition!

Renewable Heat Incentive
The RHI is a Government backed incentive which pays you for the renewable heat you produce. You will receive payments for the hot water and heat you produce yourself from systems such as solar thermal panels.
This is another great way for you to save, earn money and help save our planet! The RHI is calculated to offer a 12% return on your initial investment. Furthermore, you will save money by eliminating or reducing your need for gas or oil, both of which are becoming increasingly expensive year-on-year.
If you are a commercial/business customer, any installation costs can be 100% offset against tax in the first year. Businesses also benefit as they will use most of the electricity generated throughout the day, therefore cutting the cost of their electricity bill further.
