Even if you use the electricity generated, you will be paid a fixed amount per kWh of generation. Any excess energy that you do not use, gets fed back to the grid, where energy providers will pay for for the energy that went into the system.
Most domestic renewable energy systems qualify, including:
Solar panel installations certified under the MCS scheme automatically qualify for the Feed in Tariff. Those that do not, are not eligible for the Feed in Tariff. MAK Energy is officially MCS certified, so all of our installations come with the Feed in Tariff as standard. Not only has the price of renewable energy gone down, and its efficiency gone up over the years, the government will now reward you financially for all solar panel installations.
Solar panels use radiation from the sun, so they will never run out of energy. Even when night falls, photovoltaic systems will store in a battery any excess energy generated during the day, so that you always have a renewable energy source that you can trust and rely on.
