Solar Panels for Free ?

A number of firms are now offering 'free' installation of PV Solar panels - where they own the panels and get the generation subsidary & money from any surplus power fed into the grid while the home owner benefits from free electricity (depending on power generated - up to approx 20% on usage) .

These contracts are for at least 25 years & stay with the house rather than the current home owner.

'Renting out' roof space is also starting to be an option for social housing builders but comes with a warning. see article from 'Inside Housing' here

Here is one report from the BBCTV News report in Yorkshire http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10277544

See the Energy Savings Trust's advice on 'renting out your roof' here 

Remember before entering into any long term contract take professional & legal advice first.

  1. Free schemes are great if all you want is a bit of free electricity but who would say they would be happy to let the company benefit from their potential £23,000 profit from the Feed-in and export tariffs!

    There is a company in Yorkshire aptly named Yorkshire Energy Services who offer reasonable rates for Solar PV panels (a 1.3kw system is £7250 inc VAT & scaffolding -a bigger system will cost more but reap you more rewards) and you get to keep all of the tariff's associated with the installation. See www.yorkshireenergyservices.co.uk
