Solar PV installation

The case for solar PV:

  • Independently generated electricity for your business.
  • Your energy supplier will pay you a set rate for every kWh you generate.
  • The government backed Feed in Tariff (FIT) scheme is guaranteed for 20 years.
  • You will also be paid an additional tariff for 50% of the electricity you generate for systems below 30 kWp.
  • The payment is linked to the Retail Price Index (RPI).
  • Your electricity bill will be reduced
  • Your company can profit from the associated PR benefits of using clean energy

Recent advances in photovoltaic technologies has seen increased ease and increased efficiency in converting the sun’s energy to electricity.

Now a proven and viable alternative to fossil fuels the uptake of PV has increased by 50% per year, over the last 10 years.

With no moving parts and regular maintenance required, PV installations are typically sold with a 25-year performance guarantee and a life expectancy of 30 plus years.

The government-backed Feed In Tariff (FIT) scheme provides added financial benefits paying for the electricity your installation feeds into the national grid.

With current new-build planning proposals often requiring the inclusion of PV systems, NWT Solar can assist with the design and costing of any such obligation.
