QERB Energy are able to offer grants towards the supply and installation of a Solar PV system to homes that meet the following criteria:
1. Home is heated by Electric (ie Night Storage Heaters, Electric Room Heaters or Electric Boiler).
2. Someone living at the home meets the income or benefits criteria.
3. The home has a roof space that is suitable for solar panels to be installed.
What’s the catch? There is no catch. This is not like other Solar offers on the market. There is no question over who owns the solar PV system, you do. You do not have to change your energy supplier or pay any ongoing fees for the electric you produce. There is no longer a Feed-In Tariff, but you will be able to apply for a new Smart Export Tariff should you wish. There is no maintenance contract to sign up to either. You can add battery storage if you want, but there is no requirement to do so. The system you are supplied would be just the same as if you paid another company thousands of pounds on the open market, it’s just we have sourced a grant for you instead!
