Solar feed-in tariff rates to rise with inflation

Good news for anyone on a solar (photovoltaic) panel feed-in tariff is the news that the Government is to increase the tariff’s paid, following increases in the consumer price index.

The new, increased rates will come into effect from April 1st 2011.

The increase should see an average of between £0.015-0.02/kWh of electricity, depending on the size of your solar panel installation.

Solar professionals reckon the tariff increase will help generate interest in solar panel installations as more and more people become aware of the savings and return on investment, solar panels can represent.

Amidst all the recent chatter about possible negative tariff changes (aimed more at commercial, large-scale installations), it’s great news to see some positive tariff increases.
