The government has countless schemes to help families save money and have an easier life. Many schemes work on helping the environment by staying energy efficient in our properties. In addition to this, there are also schemes to help those who are disadvantaged get back into the working world. Contact us.
Below are some of the schemes that are the most advantageous to people and the environment.
Generate your own electricity & be paid for it
The government currently hold a Feed-in-Tariff for those who have solar panels installed on their home. You could earn thousands of pounds over the course of 20 years for all of the energy that is produced for your solar panels. More information.
As your panels will produce free electricity, you will get paid for the energy that is used (generation tariff) and the rest that isn’t used (export tariff). You will notice a massive drop in energy bills and can expect a good return on investment.
Free solar panel installation
Now, as the overall cost of installing solar panels is slightly expensive to begin in, there are schemes that install them for free on your property. Read more.
If you qualify for free solar panels, you will not receive the Feed-in-Tariff, yet you will have the satisfaction of free, green energy throughout your home.
