During September 2011, the media has been providing yet more bleak forecasts for UK households, with a rise of between 10 and 20 per cent in energy prices expected for the coming winter. With global wholesale gas and electricity generation prices also remaining steadily high, solar photovoltaic panel (solar PV) installers Spirit Solar have renewed their efforts to offer UK consumers a viable and cost-efficient energy generation alternatives.
Three Reasons to Invest in Solar PV Panels
The firm, a leading supplier and installer of solar photovoltaic panels for the UK and Spanish commercial and domestic markets, has provided UK consumers with Three Reasons to Go Solar PV.
It is hoped that this move will help energy consumers to understand why solar panels are such a beneficial long-term investment in this current economic climate, and will encourage them to consider investing in such a cost-effective system that negates a high level of dependency on ‘traditional’ and unsustainable fuel generation.
1. A GOOD INVESTMENT
As Spirit Solar is a Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MSC) accredited company, any customer that has their Solar PV systems installed by Spirit Solar will automatically qualify for the government’s feed-in tariff. The feed-in tariff is essentially a payback scheme, and based on current energy prices, any Solar PV system installed by Spirit Solar will pay for itself within 10 years. However, if according to current trends energy prices continue to rise, a Solar PV system that qualifies for a feed-in tariff will pay for itself sooner.
