New Solar Award Incentive

Nigel Adams MP welcomes E.ON’s recently created a ‘Solar Reward’ incentive, and is hopeful that many constituents will be able to benefit. Homeowners looking to fit solar panels can earn money  for the power they supply to the grid through a new payment scheme offering 5.24p per every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of energy exported back to the grid.

The scheme is designed to continue rewarding customers who invest in solar energy ahead of the closure of the Government’s Feed-in Tariff (FiT) subsidy scheme and will bridge the gap until the future launch of the Government’s new supplier-led Smart-Export Guarantee.

E.ON is the first and supplier in the UK to offer such an incentive for new customers to export energy they’ve generated from their solar panels back to the grid, helping to support the UK’s target to produce 30% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020 and allowing environmentally minded constituents to support a cleaner, greener Britain and take an active role in a renewable society. The incentive will be available to the first 500 new solar customers to have panels installed.

Speaking on the incentive, Nigel Adams MP said “I welcome this announcement from E.ON to incentivise more homeowners to consider solar power options. I encourage all constituents to look into the scheme and explore the potential benefits it has to offer.”
