New package removes upfront cost of solar panels for homeowners

Breakthrough ‘green energy package' removes financial hurdle, so households can: ----- Own their own PV systems (no leasing roofs to companies for ‘free PV' schemes) ----- Generate free electricity ----- Pay nothing up front ----- Generate Feed-in Tariff cash and electricity savings that will meet the equivalent of all finance repayments1 ----- Earn an additional £18,000 1

Householders who want to install solar panels on their roof, but don't have the cash up front to pay for them, can now access ‘green energy' finance that enables them to not only purchase a system, but also keep all of the energy saving and Feed-in Tariff (FiT) benefits.


The scheme, which is being launched by Exeter-based SunGift Solar, means that not only will Feed-in Tariff cash and electricity savings meet householders' finance repayments, but also the measures will earn them an additional £18,000 over 20 years.

"These loans are a breakthrough for homeowners in the south west who are interested in solar PV but don't have the initial capital to buy a system," said Gabriel Wondrausch, managing director at SunGift Solar, the only company to be voted South West Green Energy Installer of the Year twice.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
