Solar PV comes of age – Grid parity for solar photovoltaics in Spain today

With the drop in the supply price of solar panels, the cost of installations, a LOT more sun (than England) and the much higher electricity prices now means that an economic investment can be made in Solar PV without the need for Feed-in-Tariff or Renewable Energy Obligation support . Of course that is at the industrial scale! – In just one province – Murcia in South East Spain – they plan to install 2.5GW of solar PV – that’s 10 times more than they did in the last two years alone.

So what does this mean to business and commercial installations?

It depends upon who you do business with.

Worcester Renewables buys direct from the manufacturers, and with 4 – 6 week lead times between purchase and delivery our prices are already determined for post 1st August, and whether your purchase before or after 1st August you will still see an ROI, index linked of 10% year on year.  However if you can install before the  1st August you will benefit from those payments for 25 years, as opposed to a reduced 20 years.

We also have funding available for a number of sites, so if you believe that you have a property that may be suitable for the installation of Solar PV, then just fill in the form below and we’ll get straight back to you:

Worcester Renewable Tweets with Greg Barker–Minister Avoids the Questions

In usual politician parlance no questions were actually answered, , however here are the questions I did manage to get an answer to in poli-speak.

@DECCgovuk There are lots of rumours of massive cuts to the Feed in Tariff for Solar PV in April 2012, what are your plans?

WorcsRenewables Worcester Renewables

@DECCgovuk #AskEnergy What is the current timescale for the FiTs Strategic Review?

WorcsRenewables Worcester Renewables

@DECCgovuk #AskEnergy rumours abound that the FiTs review is late and that another drop in Feed-in Tariffs will b annouced before Xmas True?

DECCgovuk DECC

clearly big scope to realign tariff with cost, the more we save the more there will be to spread further. i want max takeup 4 money & TLC

DECCgovuk DECC

And by TLC i mean Transparency, Longevity & Certainty for consumers and industry

WorcsRenewables Worcester Renewables

@DECCgovuk does that mean FiT rates may change mid year with short notice? #AskEnergy

DECCgovuk DECC

Massive fall in solar costs & big take up is good news but FITs need to be more dynamic to track industry. Comprehensive Review out shortly

The Sun Has Got his Hat On

Hip Hip Hooray!

Ofgem has just released the new figures for Feed-in Tariff (FIT) payment for2011/2012, and as promised, they have been increased in line with the Retail price increase, meaning that they’ve gone up a whopping 4.8% !

Just click here: to download the latest FIT Payment Rate Table for 2011/12

So just what does it mean for Solar PV owners?

Well, instead of earning 41.3(1) pence per kWH you will now be getting paid 43.3 pence per kWh, meaning that your pay back period will be even quicker than we estimated (we had assumed an increase of only 3.5%), and your FIT payments cheques will be even bigger!

Important NOTE from Ofgem: –

Because from 1 April 2011 all electricity generated and exported by accredited installations will receive the adjusted tariff, it is important that the existing generators take a meter reading on 31 March 2011. In the absence of such a reading, FIT Licensees will calculate what proportion of electricity has been generated and exported until 31 March 2011, and what proportion has been generated and exported from 1 April 2011. They will then apply the relevant tariff to the generation and export electricity.

This is good news for all of our existing customers that have installed systems under the FIT scheme over the last 12 months and even better new for those considering it or planning to have it installed this year.

Also don’t forget that the Government has announced its review of the FIT scheme due to the massive number of Solar PV farms (see this post for more details on that), meaning that now is an even better time to get on and get your system installed.
