FEED IN TARRIFF
Save Money with the Feed in Tariff System courtesy of Slate Insulations Ltd. across the South.
Under the FITS scheme, if you have installed the correct solar heating system you could be paid for the electricity that you generate.
To quote the Energy Saving Trust - “to get Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) at the standard rate for solar PV your property needs to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of band D or better.”
“If your EPC is a band E, F or G you will need to carry out energy efficiency improvements before applying for the FITs or receive the lower rate of 7.1p/kWh for the lifetime of the tariff, currently 20 years.”
As you can see from the solar radiation map, here in the South we receive more solar radiation than other parts of the UK.
