Grants for Solar panels and Feed in tariffs
UK Government feed in tariff guarantees a minimum payment, index linked and tax free for twenty five years for generating solar electricity
Solar Grants Background (Before feed in tarrifs were introduced)
The Department of Trade and Industry launched its four-year Major Photovoltaics Demonstration programme in 2002, offering grants for PV installation to householders, the public sector and businesses. The grants are administered through The Energy Savings Trust and fall into two categories of grant.
Stream 1 for Small Systems
These grants are for PV systems under 5kW peak output and this would typically include domestic homes and small organisations and offices. A grant of up to 50% of system cost is available although this may be capped for certain types of technology and level of build. PV Systems is a DTI accredited PV installer, and will help you complete the grant application and provide all supporting documentation, details etc
Stream 2 for Larger Systems
These grants are for PV systems over 5kW peak output and would typically include systems for medium to large organisations in the private or public sectors. Grant offers up to 55% of systems costs can be made for public sector PV projects and up to 40% for PV projects in the private sector. Applications for medium to large scale PV systems are a little more complex and will require further information on the proposed PV installation to be approved. Applications are considered for funding every quarter through a competitive call for proposals. PV Systems is a DTI accredited PV installer, and will help you complete the grant application and provide all supporting documentation, details etc.
