The Government is keen to see more people using solar power. So there's an incentive for those who invest in a solar installation. This incentive is known as the 'Feed-in tariff' (FiT).

How this works is that once you've have had your solar panels installed and connected, your solar power meter will record how much electricity you have generated from your solar panels. For each unit of electricity produced by your panels, the Government, through your energy provider, will reward you.

The rate you are paid is more generous if you use a certified installer, such as Dresser-Solar.

Because the tariffs are subject to periodic review, we can advise on the current rates at the time of our no-obligation survey. The rate at which you are paid is guaranteed by the Government for 20 years.

These tariff payments are tax-free and index-linked.
