Solar PV Panels Uptake 'Increasing'

Oct 21, 2010, 08:04 ET from Solar Choice

MANCHESTER, England, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- MCS accredited solar panel installers, Solar Choice, believe that the uptake in solar pv panels is definitely increasing as a result of the recently introduced Feed In Tariff.

Solar Choice Sales Director, Ajay Hargreaves, comments that;

"The Feed In Tariff has made solar panel installation a viable investment – rather than simply an expense. The rates you are paid by the Government for the electricity you produce are generous, to say the least and the fact that you are even paid for the electricity you consume yourself has added to the appeal of the tariff. It has definitely meant that more consumers are seriously considering solar PV."

However, Ajay still believes there is some way to go in making everyone aware of the Feed In Tariff, adding;

"What we are seeing is that a lot of people still are not entirely sure what the Feed In Tariff is and what it means for them financially. The Government has introduced this amazing incentive – but we still don't feel as though it is doing a good enough job of telling people about it and really getting the information out there. A bit more consumer information could really make the Feed In Tariff a huge success."
