Getting a couple of quotes right now is free and easy. With the FIT possibly falling in April, why not see if you can afford it?

Across the UK, the solar panels industry took off in April 2010, when the Feed In Tariff (FIT) was first introduced as a government-backed scheme which means that solar panels pay themselves off over time as energy companies are made to buy excess solar power automatically feed back into the main grid. The team at TalkSolarPanels have noticed that there is an increasing rise in potential solar panel buyers wanting to know if they should buy now, and the potential changes in UK solar power policy.

Going, Going, Gone?
The Feed in Tariff has already fallen for larger commercial class solar power systems, with a recent cut of up to 75% for solar installations over 50kW, causing a massive rush in solar power farm applications before the deadline for these decreases is to be put into place. For example, Toyota’s current 5 megawatt system would see subsidies slashed from 30.7p per kW generated to a paltry in comparison 8.5p.

The Current Situation
At present, solar panels installed are eligible for the Feed In Tariff at its current (and index-linked) rate for the entire 25 year period. This means that any solar panels currently installed or put into place before government announces any definite changes will receive the FIT. This is a good reason to get a few quotes, which is the service provided by TalkSolarPanels – three free quotes anywhere in the UK.

The reasons for these decreases are not so much environmental, but economic. Indeed, the cause of much concern over a potential drop in the FIT for domestic solar panels is the resurgence in economic problems. There has been a recent dramatic sell off in shares as there has been speculation over the Eurozone debt crisis spreading from smaller countries in the bloc to larger economies such as Spain and Italy. Greece, Portugal and the Irish Republic have already received help so far, and Richard Hunter, head of UK equities at Hargreaves Landsdown Stockbrokers has stated that the FTSE 100 is down by 16% this year alone.
