I have recently investigated the potential advantage of Photovoltaic energy PV. I made enquiries with a number of Companies and I asked four of them to come to my house to quote. The difference in approach, attitude and price was considerable. I chose ACE Plumbing Shaftesbury as being the most professional in their approach, together with a favourable price. They kept to their price and timetable. Their work force was on time, efficient and tidy, as was the office back up in Shaftesbury who have to put all the correct paper work in place In order for the Feed In Tariff (FIT ) to become operative
The Green Deal Launch Announced
Green Deal Soft Launch Announced
From 1st October homeowners and businesses will be able to take advantage of the new Green Deal which is a raft of financial incentives to improve the energy efficiency of UK buildings.
From the Autumn Green Deal Assessors will be available to advise on the best ways to lower energy bills whilst reducing CO2 emissions. Items such as insulation, low energy boilers and renewable energy systems can be fitted without any upfront costs – the costs being recouped automatically from the reduced energy consumption of the building. The assessor’s report can be used to help consumers decide on the most appropriate measures, which installer to use and who will provide the Green Deal finance. Then from 28th January 2013 the installations can take place.
With energy costs rising ahead of inflation consumers will begin to reap the benefits of lower fuel bills from day one after installation.
Summary of Green Deal benefits:
- Energy saving technologies can be installed without upfront cost to property owner.
- No burdening debt – Green Deal finance will be attached to the property meter and automatically repaid from fuel savings.
- No outstanding payments if property is sold as loan stays with energy meter in property.
- Feed-In Tariff and Renewable Heat Incentives will be allowed within the Green Deal.
