First of all hello to everyone. My name is Daniel Taylor Iam an Appointments Manager at The Energy Conservation Group.
I have read quite a number of posts on this website andthere is a lot of confusion among the general public about the investmentopportunity for generating your own electricity using solar power modules. It’snot surprising as the government have made quite a few changes to the schemesince its release date back in April 2010! I would like to explain theinvestment and the benefits of using solar power; I will make my explanation assimple as possible and include technical details for the more advancedresearchers into the subject.

The scheme was released April 1 2010, an incentive put inplace to encourage homeowners to become self sufficient and generate you ownelectricity and get paid for doing so! At this moment in time you can earn 21pper unit of electricity you generate and use for yourself. Not only will thatbut for any electricity you are not using automatically be sold back to thenational grid earning you an additional 3p on top of the 21p. As you can seeyou will be paid regardless whether you use the electricity or not! Got aholiday planned? Even if no-one is home your system is still earning you money!On top of this, the scheme is TAX FREE and INDEX LINKED. Meaning this is agreat way to lock in your energy bills as they are. You will not be affected bythe energy price inflations because as energy bills rise the difference will bepaid to you!
I have provided a link that will explain the scheme in fulldetail and the site provides links to keep you updated of any changes made. Iwill provide you with links to specification details that we The EnergyConservation Group offer at this moment in time. Just copy and paste the linksinto your browser.
