There are dozens of ways that installing solar panels for your house or business pays you back after the initial investment and installation – but there’s one that you may not know about.
If you live in the UK, the government’s Feed-In Tariff (FIT) provides further financial benefits for those with solar panels, which we’ll explain in this article, along with all the other ways that you can make money through taking part in the solar panel green initiative.

Basically, with this scheme, you get paid for electricity that you generate with eligible renewable energy systems, like photovoltaic (PV) solar panels.
If there is surplus energy produced by your panels that you don’t use, you can sell it. As well as earning you money, this also encourages energy efficiency in the home or business, as you make more money with the less energy you personally use.
You can get paid and save money under the FIT scheme in three ways:
As you can see, the government are making the installation of solar panels an even more attractive prospect, to get more people to switch to green energy. Not only are you powering your own home or business with green energy and reducing your carbon footprint, but you could be providing renewable energy for others AND getting paid for it.
There’s never been a better time to contact a green energy solutions company near you, who will be happy to discuss all the benefits of investing in solar panels with you, plus provide you with reliable installation from experts.
Here are some of the other massive benefits to installing solar panels, financial or otherwise:
If you are still unsure about all the benefits that a renewable energy system could bring to you, there are solar energy calculators available online (a good one can be found at the Energy Saving Trust website). This will show you a personalised calculation of the energy bill savings you could make, and the payments you could receive through FIT.
