Many suppliers and installers offer this type of deal, they "only" ask for all the feed-in tarrif for themselves. About £800 a year's worth from the Government.

Mind you, if you tried to opt for buyiing your own and keeping the feed-in tarrif yourself, it would take about 20 years to break even! (based on the roughly £15000 it costs for the panels and installation contracts).

Plus possible problems if the system needs constant maintenance at your cost, if not part of the deal.

So, for a hassle free way to save money, this may not be so bad an idea.

Just do your research first, see moneysavingexpert.com and use Google/Yahoo searches..

You are also (I believe) tied to a 20 year contract or similar (edit - 25 years in this case?) so would have to sell the house with it attached. Which may not be a problem if you are saving the new buyers money.....

Thought about doing this I must admit

thanks been thinking about doing this for a bit now

If you are staying in your property and can afford it , far better to install yourself
#6
I agree if you have the cash, install yourself.

I thought this was a good deal for no outlay!

I heard a building society woman on Moneybox saying they won't give mortgages on the properties with "free" panels as it's like giving a 25 year lease on your roof so the house isn't freehold or something. Grr. Would like these as have a 50 foot run of south facing roof but I need to know the house is still mortgagable.

Same deal also offered by Swalec & Southern Electric.

Tried to get it last year from another company. Sent them a link pinpointing the roof on Google Maps and got a reply saying it wasn't South facing. It's about 2 deg off South. Tried again with BG and was told it was only for BG customers so just had a solar hot water system installed instead
