Solar electricity is seen by many to be an expensive opportunity, however the UK feed-in tariff for solar energy has made it more attractive to homeowners. The scheme enables homeowners to receive benefits for the electricity they generate in three ways……

- Additional bonus payments for electricity exported into the grid
- A reduction on your standard electricity bill, from using energy you produce yourself
