Government Grants for Solar Panels

The UK government has committed itself to reducing household C02 emissions and improving the energy efficiency of homes throughout the UK. Currently there are two schemes specifically targeted at getting more domestic use of solar panels one for solar photovoltaic panels and the other for solar hot water systems.

We only install MCS accredited systems and we will not be beaten on price. Contact us for advice and a quote for your home solar system.

If you are looking to purchase a Solar Hot Water System, the government will give a grant of a maximum of £400 or 30% of the total vat-exclusive installed cost, whichever is the smaller cost. In reality the cost of a solar hot water system means that most will receive the £400 grant.

Act quickly to take advantage of the remaining grants that are available for solar hot water systems and be ready for the new renewable heat incentive scheme.

What is a high efficiency self condensing boiler?

A condensing boiler captures much more usable heat from its fuel than a non-condensing boiler. Its high operating efficiency is made possible by the design of the condensing boiler’s larger – or sometimes dual – heat exchanger.

The heat exchanger makes sure that as much heat as possible is transferred from the boiler’s burner – and as little as possible lost in hot gases through the flue.

There are two types of condensing boiler: regular and combination. Regular condensing boilers heat your hot water through a hot water cylinder, combination condensing boilers give you instant hot water without the need for a cylinder.

Will it save me money?

If everyone in the UK with gas or oil heating installed a high efficiency condensing boiler we would save enough fuel to heat 1.9 million homes a year and reduce CO2 emissions by 6.7 million tonnes

Are there alternatives to high efficiency self condensing boilers?

The traditional gas boiler is still the simplest and most economical for heating in the UK but there are now many alternatives including biomass boilers, ground source heat pumps and solar panels.
