If you’ve been thinking about installing solar panels on your property, act fast – because you only have until December 12th 2012 to get the system up and running to take advantage of the current government subsidy.

Time is runnning out

The UK government has announced that it is halving the FiT (Feed-in Tariff) payments for domestic solar installations commissioned (that is, in working order) after December 12th 2011. If you can get your panels working before then, you get the current rate of subsidy for 25 years. If not, you’ll get the reduced rate.

After the official announcement later this week there’s bound to be a panic to book installations – but if you act quickly and call in a few favours, you might just beat the rush. If you know anyone who’s been thinking about solar, please let them know!
