Coping with the feed-in tariff cuts

Posted by Cathy Debenham on 13 February 2012 at 7:54 am

The feed-in tariff rates (FiT) rates for solar installations have been cut by half. Since the announcement last year, many working in industry have prophesised that DECC has killed the industry dead.

But has it?

The ongoing saga and debate surrounding these changes shows just how it important it is for solar installation businesses across the country, to nurture the best networks and be aware of the most up-to-date information to ensure they continue to thrive in 2012 and beyond.

Solar Power UK will tour as a roadshow to six towns across the UK to present half day events, and they have asked me to join the team. I'll be talking about marketing strategies to beat the cuts.

Each session will discuss the real impact of the feed-in tariff cuts, the impending and possible EPC requirements, how the Green Deal will affect solar  PV installers, and how the UK solar industry can remain sustainable into 2012.

Sessions will be in Newport, Exeter, Salford, London, Edgbaston and Newmarket. Click here to find out more and to book your place.
