Latest news… Get in quick for excellent Solar PV tariffs…

All homes which install solar electricity panels must meet minimum energy efficiency standards in order to benefit from subsidies, the Government has said.

Energy Minister Greg Barker said that there would be no more solar subsidies under the feed-in tariff scheme, which pays people for the electricity they generate from small scale renewables, for homes that are energy inefficient.

He told the Solar Power UK conference: “It cannot be right to encourage consumers to rush to install what are still expensive electricity generating systems in their homes before they have thoroughly explored all of the sensible options for reducing their energy consumption first.”

Mr Barker did not announce cuts to the subsidies for electricity generated from small scale solar photovoltaics (PV), but they are widely expected to come in the next few days. The solar industry fears major reductions in the subsidies, which make installing the panels financially viable, will destroy the sector.

Mr Barker insisted to delegates: “I haven’t come here to kill off the tariff scheme, I want to fix it, enhance it and put the whole industry on a sustainable, credible economic path to a bright and exciting future.”

But he warned the conference that the feed-in tariffs had to live within their budget, and were unsustainable in the current financial conditions.

Lower levels of subsidies were necessary to ensure there was more money to go around and the scheme would not just give “bumper returns to a lucky few”.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change said 260 megawatts (MW) of solar PV had been fitted since the scheme started, compared to the 94MW projected to have been installed by this point, and that the costs of installation had dropped from an average £13,000 to £9,000 for the technology.

Howard Johns, of the Cut Don’t Kill campaign, a coalition of solar companies and environmentalists campaigning against the rumoured cuts of 50% to the tariff, said: “We welcome Greg Barker’s intentions and his commitment to the industry, but the Government will be judged on actions, not words.

“We accept that the feed-in tariff needs to be reduced, and will work with Government on the new consultation to get the level right for the industry and consumers. However, a reduction in the tariff to 20p, as has been suggested, would be catastrophic for the industry and the 25,000 people it employs.”

NEW ENERGY TIPS SERVICE TO SAVE LOCAL PEOPLE MONEY ON BILLS

A Clevedon firm are aiming to protect local residents and businesses from rocketing energy prices with tips and practical advice.
JAD Solar of Kenn Road will offer free energy saving tips, consultancy and advice to cut energy bills and also generate free electricity by Solar PV and other methods.
They will use their website-based blog at www.jadsolar.co.uk as well as newsletters and articles to educate the public.
Their new service comes on the back of news that Clevedon Town Football Club are hoping to install 204 photovoltaic solar panels on the southern roof of its Davis Lane stadium.
Clevedon FC joins a growing number of residents, business and churches who are fitting Solar power to cut rising energy bills.
John Davis said: “It is a tough time for many with energy bills. As a local firm with expert engineers we can advise on how to cut costs and actually generate free electricity.
“For example, by turnng off your standby on the microwave you can save approximately a pound a month. These amounts mount up.
“And Solar PV is an easy way to save money and also make an excellent income from an investment.”
