If your home is suitable, solar panels can be a great way to reduce your electricity bills, allowing you to generate your own electricity from the sun. We support any customer who chooses to use our smart metering system in conjunction with solar panel technology, offering a product that can effectively report on the extent of your savings.
By generating your own electricity you will of course save on your energy bills and with the Government’s Feed-in Tariff, you could be paid for every kilowatt hour (kWh) you generate. The amount you will receive depends on the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating your home achieves. In addition to this, any electricity you don't use will earn you extra income by feeding it back into the Grid.
The 'Feed-in Tariff scheme' (FITs) was devised by the government to encourage domestic customers and businesses to generate their own energy. Solar PV (Photovoltaic) systems that meet the scheme’s requirements are entitled to receive payment not only for the electricity they generate* but also any energy not used at your premises, which gets exported back into the grid. Remember, these payments are on top of the savings you make by generating and using your own renewable electricity, rather than using energy supplied to you.
For further information, and to see if your solar PV system qualifies for the Feed-in Tariff, please refer to the eligibility criteria set out by Ofgem.
Please note that due to recent regulations changes, we are required to wait 14 working days from receiving your application before we can process it. During this time, we will check your application for any further information that we may require to ensure that your application can then be processed in a timely manner.
