PV Prices Down + PV FIT Subsidy Up = Unmissable Great Opportunity for Solar Electric (PV) Installations!

Filed under: Latest News

PV Prices Down + PV FIT Subsidy Up = One Great Buying Opportunity for Solar Electric (PV) Installations!

At Solar Twin Ltd we have reduced our solar electric (solar PV) installation prices by up to £1000, thanks to lower component costs (costs which, interestingly, now appear to be levelling off.).

Further good news on top of this price drop is a subsidy increase. The UK government’s 25 year subsidy for PV installations (the Feed in Tariff or FIT) has risen. On 1 April 0211 the FIT was 41.3p per unit (kilowatt-hour) of solar electricity that you generate. Today it is even higher, at 43.3p, an inflation-linked rise of 2p, or a 4.8% rise in FIT tariff.

Now has never been a better time to install solar PV in UK because:

  • Solartwin’s lower solar PV prices make PV even more affordable
  • Only 5% VAT is currently charged on solar PV installations
  • UK’s solar PV FIT subsidies are 65% more generous than Germany’s
  • UK’s national electricity charges are rising (with solar PV you will need to buy less)
  • Within a year, government generosity to new entrants to the solar PV FIT scheme may be reduced.

What do you think? The solar PV FIT is paid to direct you based on metered performance of your home’s solar PV system. Your solar PV FIT eligibility lasts for 25 years. Your solar PV FIT income is automatically upgraded by inflation every year, for 25 years. And all your solar PV FIT income is tax free. How does this compare with your bank? Seize the moment…

  • You need a suitable sunny roof elevation, and a structurally sound roof.
  • You must have mains electricity already supplied for a “grid-connected” installation.
  • We can supply any size of domestic PV installation between 1-4 kW peak, nationwide.
  • For FIT eligible installations, installers need to be “MCS accredited” (Solartwin are MCS).
  • FIT eligible PV installations from Solartwin offer a tax free return of 8% to 10%.

More and more people are choosing solar PV as a profitable, reliable green investment. Our indicative prices and FIT income estimates are here. We fit all major PV brands including Caymax & Sharp, manufactured 10 miles from here!

We’d love you to call me now for your exact solar PV quote on 0344 567 9032.

I can also put you in touch with a local Solartwin solar PV customer. I’d love you to become a Solartwin solar PV customer during this brief window of opportunity.

Sunny Regards from us all at Solartwin – nationwide UK solar installers.
