The MCS scheme community responded more positively than others in the solar industry, to the weeks earlier news of the feed-in tariff cuts.
In particular, the MCS community see’s the cuts as an opportunity for smaller solar installers to gain business as larger ‘free-installation’ companies cut back on investment and installations.
They also reckon falling installation costs – one of the reasons cited by the Government for feeling able to reduce the tariffs without damaging the number of installations to greatly – will open up the technology to more homeowners on a paid installation basis as opposed to those who were only able, previously, to consider a free installation contract.
The Green Deal will also stimulate solar installations when it starts next year and the Renewable Heat Incentives have also just been given the go-ahead, having cleared a European hurdle earlier this week.
Sounds like plenty of work for everyone doesn’t it?
