Many home roofs are not suitable for solar panels. They face the wrong way or are shaded from the sun. But anyone can invest in community power schemes and still generate income from solar panels.

Feed-In Tariffs ending in March 2019
Well it now looks almost certain that the government incentives for installing solar panels will end on 31st March next year.
But all is not lost - there is still time to get a quote and the installation done - but time is running short. There will be a rush for new systems after the New Year. That will put supply chains and installers under pressure - inevitably that will lead to shortages and price rises. There is also an upper limit on the number of feed-in tariffs applications that can be accepted in any given quarter.
Also larger systems - over 3.68kW - need permission from SSE before they can be connected. Getting permission can take 10 weeks or more.
So our advice is, if you are thinking about getting solar panels installed then do so now and use an MCS registered installer (like us!).
