Solar Panel Installation in Bournemouth, Poole & Dorset

Solar PV systems simply convert sunlight into electricity. An array of solar panels are installed directly onto your roof and connected to your existing power supply. This electricity is fed straight into the power supply of the property. It saves on your bills as the system always uses your own PV electricity before drawing it from your power supplier. Any excess is then automatically exported.

The main incentive, however, for installing PV now comes in the form of payback from the government for the power your generate. The Feed-in Tariff scheme offers you a fixed rate, tax free income on all electricity your PV array produces. On top of that you are helping to stop climate change, reducing co2 emissions and your carbon footprint.

Meridian Environmental can install or supply Solar PV arrays from 1kW upwards.

Feed-in Tariff

Under 4kW Installed system – 14.9p per kWh

The Feed-in Tariff has been introduced by the Government to increase the level of renewable energy in the UK towards our target of 15% of total energy from renewables by 2020 (up from under 2% in 2009)

The above will be paid for 20 years from April 2010. They are tax-free for domestic properties and are indexed linked to the RPI (Retail Price Index) to protect from inflation. E.g. Installing a 1-4kW system on an existing house in 2010 would mean the customer would lock-in to the 14.9p per unit (kWh) payment for 20 years, indexed linked to RPI and tax-free.

Example Calculation

Assuming you have a 4kW array on a South facing roof, you can generate upto 4056kWh per year. (Based on figures from the Energy Saving Trust cashback calculator,

    • 4056 x 14.9p = £604.34 from the FiT Tax Free, annually for 20 years
    • 4056 / 50% x 3p = £27.36 from exported energy. Most energy companies assume 50% will be exported if no export meter is fitted
    • Total income: £631.70 per year for 20 years

If you use 80% of the Generated electricity then a further saving of £196.99 would be possible as illustrated below:

    • 1824 x 13.5p x 80% = £196.99 assuming 80% of the power generated is used and therefore not bought from the energy companies
