You will need to use an MCS registered installer like us at MD Electrics Northwest Ltd.
In order to receive the payments through SEG, you will have to apply with a licensee. This is an electricity supplier which offers an export tariff. SEG licensees must provide a tariff if you have installed Solar Panels which meet the criteria through the MCS.
The licensee may be a different supplier from your current energy supplier.
The tariffs can change, it is recommended to check them regularly to make sure you have the best possible tariff.
PAY 0% VAT ON DOMESTIC SOLAR PANEL SYSTEMS UNTIL 2027
Great news for anyone planning on having solar panels fitted on their home as there is currently 0% VAT to pay on the system.
This rate will also last rate until 2027. After this date, the rate will increase to 5% VAT on all domestic solar panels installations.
If you have solar batteries installed as part of a hybrid solar panel system, which includes solar and batteries under the one installation, you won’t have to pay any VAT on them.
However, you will still have to pay 20% VAT on battery only storage systems, if they are installed as a stand-alone system.
Solar batteries have not been included on the government’s list of energy-saving products for 0% VAT.
Like solar panels, solar storage batteries can help reduce your energy bills and lower your carbon emissions by charging your batteries with surplus solar energy to use later.
