Aided by the recent Feed-in Tariffs scheme whereby those installing photovoltaic (electricity generating) solar panels can now get paid for the amount of energy they produce including any surplus they put back into the National Grid.
A similar scheme – Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is due to start in 2011 which will address solar hot water panels, ground source heat pumps etc.
Whilst there is conflicting stories from both sides on the real pay-back period for such installations and that ‘pay-back’ figure has been aided greatly by the new tariffs, as I was reading somewhere recently it’s worth remembering that renewable energy ‘does’ have a payback period.
Unlike continuing to use existing energy suppliers where bills will only continue to rise.
