Full description

Photovoltaic Overview
The Government has published proposals to provide you with a premium for electricity you generate from a solar PV (photovoltaic) system on your property. The incentive – known as a tariff (also being branded as the Clean Energy Cashback scheme) – is proposed to last for 25 years and is expected to come into effect in April 2010.
What’s the opportunity?
By installing a solar PV system on your roof , based on the current Government proposals you will be entitled to:
• Savings in electricity payments from the clean, renewable electricity you generate
• A Tax free Income from electricity you sell (an export tariff)
• A secure tax free investment that is not subject to any recessionary fluctuations
• A hedge against rising electricity prices
• A great sense of satisfaction, knowing you are doing your bit to cut carbon!
• A Tax free Income from the electricity you generate (41.3p per kwh)
OK so let’s look at an example based on the Government’s current proposals and tariff structure:
Let’s say you buy and install a 2.5kW PV system, which would normally cost around £12000 at today’s prices
A 2.5kW PV system will generate about 2,125 units (kilowatt hours (kWh)) of electricity per year [3] and the generation tariff is set at 41.3p per unit.
As well as receiving the generation tariff for every one of those units, you’ll typically use about half of that in your house [4], and export the rest to the grid, resulting in a payment for the exported units at 3p/unit. It is forecast that the electricity companies will pay you 3p for 50% of the amount generated to avoid export meters being installed before the introduction of Smart Meters.. This price will be index linked.
And, if you use half the electricity that is generated, you save buying regular electricity at 13p / kWh .

Income from generation tariff (2125 x 41.5p) £877.63
Income from electricity sales (1062 x 3p) £31.86
Savings on avoided electricity purchases (1062 x 13p) £138.06
Total annual income + savings £1047.55
On your payment of £12,000 you could get back approximately 8.75 % per year tax free.
The amount might vary a little each year depending on electricity prices, but that’s a pretty healthy investment. Over the 25 years for which it is proposed the tariff is guaranteed, we estimate you’d earn nearly £20,000 based on this example , which will give you a modest profit on your original outlay. And the great thing about solar PV is its life span [5] is even longer than the tariff, so you would carry on benefiting from free electricity for years to come!
The small print:
(Company Name) is not a financial services company, so the example above is indicative only. Customers wanting to compare solar PV as an investment or security should consult an IFA or other relevant professional.
Please note that the tariff legislation only covers Great Britain; Northern Ireland is excluded.
[1] The Government is proposing that the tariffs will come into effect in April 2010.
[2] The price of installing a PV system is averaged in the example above. You could pay more or less than £12,000 depending on the technology you choose and how complex the installation is.
[3] In the example, we’ve assumed that for every kwp of PV installed, you will generate 850kWh per annum. This is a national average, which assumes a south facing pitch of 30-40 degrees, with no shading issues.
4] The Energy Savings Trust assumes that 50% of PV-generated electricity is used by the homeowner and 50% is exported based on a survey of UK electricity suppliers.
[5] Typically, the power output of PV modules and tiles is warranted for 25 years. Their life span is considerably longer; up to 40 years according to some manufacturers.
[6] It is possible you may need to replace your inverter during the 25 years
