News: 25 May 2010 Will Scottish 30% / £1200 solar heating grants be cut tomorrow?

Filed under: Latest News

Solar panels – Solar Scotland –   Scottish solar heating installations – Scotland solar energy – Solar renewable heat   – Best solar prices

30% Scottish solar heating grants continue – but I think probably for only a few days – at best.

PLEASE PRE-APPLY NOW! IT’S EASY!

Urgent message to everyone in Scotland who is interested in solar water heating systems from Barry Johnston, MD of Solar Twin Ltd.

Dear Lucky Scots,

If you are thinking of applying for a solar water heating grant please may I suggest that you do so within the next 24 hours?

Why the rush? because all of UK, apart from Scotland, had their solar heating “low carbon” grants cut to zero at 6 am on Monday 24th May – this week. It is a matter of time, perhaps only days or even hours before this happens in Scotland as well.

Don’t miss the boat!

You can have a 30% grant pre-approved against your name right away. You can always decide NOT to take it up at at later date.

So if you want to apply for a Solartwin solar water heating installation, and take advantage of a grant worth £1142, a grant which may not be here tomorrow, then the application form is here.

Time is money. I respectfully urge you to download, print and complete it right now.

To make the process of filling in the form very easy, here are the main techy bits you will probably need to add, the usual entries for section C installation details, are the following:

  • Technology: solar water heating.
  • Certified Product Code: ST 4010 / ST 4020 (Our two panels are mirror images of each other. We will tell you which to enter.)
  • Certified Installer: Solar Twin Ltd.
  • Installer Certification Number: NIC 1019
  • Aperture: 2.82 sq m (this is the size of one panel – which accounts for over 90% of installations)
  • Planned Completion Date: (26 November 2010 suggested date – maximum 6 months ahead)

Net Installation Costs (excl VAT); £3808.57 suggested. Our most common price. We will, of course, always quote exactly.
VAT (non-recoverable only) £190.43 is our usual figure.
Total Cost: £3999.00 usual figure.

I hope this is useful and that you can find the time to get your solar heating grant right now. You only need to send in two things:

1. Your completed application form.
2. Your quote – please call Solartwin now on 0344 567 9032 if you don’t yet have a quote. We are open until 8 pm. Just leave a message out of hours – I promise we’ll call you right back. If you have an older quote which needs revalidating, please just let us know.

Please may I suggest that you post this in immediately – today if possible. If you are happen to be going near Edinburgh, you may want to drop it in by hand to: Energy Saving Trust, Ocean Point 1 94 Ocean Drive, Edinburgh EH6 6JH

At Solartwin, we think that these amazingly generous 30% solar heating grants are on the very point of ending. Indeed the Energy Saving Trust have today sent us a chaser email on the subject.

Even if you are not 100% certain of installing solar – please apply today. The paperwork is easy. There’s nothing to lose. When the funds are are gone – they are gone!

May I ask you to send this page without delay to everyone who you think may benefit from this news about solar grants being likely to evaporate very soon.

Regards, Barry.
