The UK should have 10 million homes with solar panels before 2020 if the Government is to fulfil its renewable energy targets. In order to hit these targets the Government is incentivising homeowners with huge savings on their energy bills and tax free cash earnings.
The government is rumoured to be considering the future of these incentives as experts are now suggesting that solar pays for itself with a combination of low installation costs and high energy bill savings.
If you are thinking of installing solar panels, you will want to do it sooner rather than later whilst you can still receive the generous tariff payments from the government. The tariff rate gets updated every three months with around a six month notice period on any changes.
Once you get your solar panels, you ‘lock-in’ your guaranteed payments for the next 20 years regardless of what happens to the tariff in the future.
