Seeking Homeowners in Hackney Interested in Installing Solar Photovoltaics

by Jamie on November 23, 2010 · 1 comment

We’re looking into the potential of gathering together groups of Hackney households wishing to install solar photovoltaic panels on their roofs.

The Feed in Tariff, which launched last year, offers a guaranteed payment of 41p for each unit of electricity generated by a home solar photovoltaic installation for a period of 25 years, which has greatly improved the economics of buying solar PV.

A typical 2kW installation would earn around £800 per year in saved electricity and revenue from the feed in tariff, paying for itself in around 8 to 10 years. The annual CO2 saving would be nearly 1 tonne, equivalent to about 20% of the carbon emissions due to gas and electricity consumption in a typical Hackney home.

By getting together as a group we can negotiate a better deal with an installer, reducing the up-front costs and getting you a better return.  If you have been thinking about investing in solar electricity generation then this is a very good opportunity to get a good deal, so please drop us a line if you want to find out more.
