Buy Solar PV Outright

Solar PV is a great investment opportunity for homeowners and businesses in England, Wales & Scotland as it offers:

  • Typical 10-12% return on investment
  • Over £800 per year Feed-in Tariff (FIT) income and savings
  • Typical cost of £6,000-8,500 capital cost depending on size of system

The most popular, and simplest, way to buy a PV FIT solar energy system is to buy it outright. The Feed-in Tariff (FIT) offers an income based on the energy produced by your PV system, plus savings on energy you are no longer importing from the grid.

A typical domestic system offers joint income and savings of over £800 per year. What’s more this is tax free and linked to inflation, which is currently a much better proposition than a *savings account. Installing a PV FIT solar energy system will likely add value to your property as future buyers will inherit lower fuel bills!

Commercial solar pv systems between 10-50kW output can see even better returns of 12-16%!

If you don’t have savings, or would prefer to keep any savings you have for a rainy day, there are other funding options open to you. These include spreading the cost Solar PV mortgage, Solar PV loan or “renting your roof” , although keep in mind the latter keeps all the profits.

*Please note: PV FIT are not a financial services company. The expected income figures we quote you are generated using MCS & Energy Saving Trust approved calculation method. The information on this site is designed to offer an example only. The performance of Solar PV systems is impossible to predict with certainty due to the variability in the amount of solar radiation (sunlight) from location to location and from year to year. Nor do we speculate on increases in RPI, or savings on Tax, in order to beef up your expected profits. If you want to compare various investment options we recommend you consult an IFA or other relevant professional.
