You could save and earn £628 a year
With Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels installed on your home you can save money by generating your own electricity, so you’ll need less from your supplier. You could also earn money with the Feed-in Tariff too.
Earn money for producing your own electricity
The Government’s Feed-in Tariff rewards you for generating your own electricity, paying you for every kilowatt hour produced, and you can earn extra money for any you don’t use that can be fed into the National Grid.
If you answer 'yes' to each of these points, your home may be suitable for a solar system:
- My home has a metered electricity supply.
- I own the freehold of my property (if your property is leasehold or you rent, you’ll need written permission from the landlord).
- My property is not a basement or mid-floor flat (you need a roof for a solar system).
- My property is not a listed building and is not in a conservation area.
- I have an unshaded roof space facing between east and west through south.
An Ecogen Micro Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system replaces your boiler, burning gas to create heat and hot water, and on average it generates about 30% of the electricity a household needs.

 Calculated at 2,575kWh x 15.44p – the average amount of energy generated plus 1184.5 kWh x 4.5p – the amount of electricity fed into the grid. Payments for Solar PV panels for the electricity you generate and use began in April 2010 as part of the Government's Feed-in Tariffs. Rate from 1st November 2012 15.44p/kWh used onsite and an additional 4.5p/kWh used for export. Rate applies only to installations fitted to or wired to a dwelling with an energy efficiency rating within rating bands A to D. Assumes our 3kWp British Gas PV System. 50/50% split between electricity used onsite and excess exported back to the grid on a typical export tariff. Unit price used in calculation representative of the average p/kWh charge, as derived from the annual bills at industry average consumption of 16,500 kWh for gas and 3,300 kWh for single rate electricity, paying by Monthly Direct Debit on our Standard Tariff prices as at 11th January 2012, averaged across all regions and including VAT. 50% onsite consumption number sourced from the Feed-in Tariffs (Specified Maximum Capacity and Functions) Order 2010. The figures do not take into account any maintenance, repair or other costs required during the 20 year period. Correct as at 1st November 2012.
