Financial Returns

Financial returns from a Solar PV (PhotoVoltaic) system are obtained from the Feed-In-Tariff scheme. This is comprised of returns from several sources:

 

  • The Generation tariff
  • Energy bill savings
  • The Export tariff

 
Generation tariff:
Energy suppliers will pay a set rate for each unit (or kWh) of electricity generated. Once your system has been registered, the tariff levels are guaranteed for the period of the tariff (up to 20 years) and are index-linked to the Retail Price Index (RPI). The level of the tariff is dependent on the size of the system but range currently from 14.38 to 12.57p per kWh.

Energy bill savings:
Solar PV will save on electricity bills because generating electricity to power appliances / lighting means not as much electricity needs to be purchased from your energy supplier. The amount saved will vary depending how much of the electricity you use on site.

Export tariff:
A set rate of 4.64p per kWh for each unit exported back to the electricity grid. Currently for installations up to 30kWp (kilowatt peak), the export tariff is calculated on the basis of 50% of the electricity generated. Systems above 30kWp need to have an export meter installed and the payment is based on the actual units exported.
