Your support is important to us and we’re offering advisers £300 for every recommendation that leads to a client installing with us.
Alternatively this can be paid in part or full to your client.
Ever since the government’s feed-in tariff for solar installations fell from 43.3p to 21p per unit, there’s been a misconception that the technology is no longer financially viable.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. Falling panel prices and a competitive marketplace mean that, on the current tariff, it’s possible to generate returns of 12.6% a year for 25 years.
Even when taking the cost of the installation into account, customers can still enjoy returns of 8.6% a year for 25 years. In both cases returns are index linked and tax free.
But it’s important that your clients act quickly. Right now new investors will secure the 21p – RPI linked and fixed for the 25-year duration of the scheme. However, on 1 August 2012 rates are set to drop to 16p per unit.
