    Years ago we were wiring 2 houses a day for solar then the rates changed and never fitted one since. But a new thing is someone fitted them for free and you get cheap electricity, has to be a catch :dodgydeal:

    The government are changing the rates you get back from electricity again in the new year.
    If people get them fitted before the dead line they stay on the higher tariff.

    Cynic that I'am
    I was under the impression
    1 solar panel installer gets money ongoing from electricity produced (FITs = feed in tariffs)
    2 the householder gets money from a reduced bill
    3 this money going to 1 & 2 comes from everybody else who has an electricity bill or is a tax payer perhaps ! ! !

    I seem to recall a figure of 20% return for the installer because of the high FIT and the Government trying to undo the deal at some point because of the over generous return
    Transfer of money from the many to the few - good old capitalism

    I stand to be corrected
