What Next - 12 Steps to Greener Energy

Your investment into Solar PV could generate between 9-11% returns, tax-free, index-linked and government backed for 25 years (thanks to the Feed-in Tariff), and you can either pocket that income or invest it into an ISA every year. You will also save hundreds on your electricity bills whilst reducing your carbon emissions.

We are convinced that there isn’t an ISA or investment currently available that will give you these returns. Take a look at the link to the following website which will calculate the likely 25-year return on an investment and enter the following figures (ignore the fact that these are shown in dollars – the end result is the same):

Starting Balance £13,000
Monthly deposit 0
Interest rate (lets set a generous 3%) 3%
Compounded Quarterly
Number of Years 25

You will be given an annual figure which shows how your £13,000 will grow each year over the 25-year period, with an end result of some £14,219.11 over the 25-year period. Now compare this to a Solar PV array fitted to a South facing roof, at a 30 degree pitch. For the same £13,000 investment you should see an income of £52,086.74 over the same 25 year period.

Businesses of any size, schools, churches, community groups, not for profit organisations, in fact any organisation can benefit from Feed-in Tariffs. You will need to speak to your accountants regarding the tax benefits, but the FITs and savings would be as indicated above.
