Sunny Future for Solar Installers

With Amber Rudd, the new Energy and Climate Change Secretary at the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) promising to deliver a solar revolution during her tenure, NAPIT says now is the time for installers to get involved with this increasingly popular technology.

Over the past year, solar PV installations have been increasing dramatically in the UK, making it the largest growth market for the technology in Europe. According to a new report by the Department of Energy & Climate Change, compared with the previous year, generation alone doubled in 2014, showing that installers looking to get into this market could be timing their expansion perfectly.

David Cowburn, Managing Director of NAPIT Certification, said: “To maintain the recent growth of solar PV, NAPIT are pushing for continued stable Government support through the Feed in Tariff (FiT). This would enable the domestic market for solar PV to continue on the trajectory to cost-neutral and no longer need Government support, providing a stable future for solar PV installers.

To ensure this indeed happens, the Government must leave the FiT scheme untouched; allowing the continuation of stable growth whilst managing costs through effective digression. Through recently published campaign infographics, NAPIT have effectively summarised the FiT policy and set out potential risks and proposals to mitigate these.”
