  • Renewable Energy

    Benning have remained at the forefront of all new developments in renewable energy and in turn offering the best advise to clients. Our surveyors have undergone the relevant training to ensure all feasibility studies are practical and affordable.

    Our range of renewable energy includes solar PV panels, solar hot water, ground source heat pumps, air to air heating/cooling, rainwater harvesting, biomass and biofuel systems.

    Feed-In Tariffs (FITs) help you make money from generating your own electricity with Solar PV Panels. With FITs you can get paid for the electricity you produce and use as well as for the surplus electricity you export to the grid.

    With 40% of the UK’s carbon emissions attributed to the transport and residential sectors, there is a long way to go before we achieve the 2020 reduction target of 34% below 1990 levels.

    Many people still believe that their actions do not make a difference, but the statistics are showing that we decreased our UK net CO2 emissions by 8.7% in 2008 and 9.8% in 2009. There are now so many ways to save money, energy and the planet without having to invest too much time or effort. This section will focus on the small, medium and large solutions which can significantly help to reduce the carbon emissions your home produces and fight climate change.

    Feed-In Tariffs

    The Feed-In Tariffs (also known as FITs) were introduced by the Government in April 2010 to help increase the level of renewable energy in the UK, towards a target of 15% of total energy from renewables by 2020. The tariffs are used to incentivise people to use solar power, encouraging us all to be more environmentally responsible. The tariffs were produced to subsidise the initial cost of installing a solar power system, and earn a return of up to 13% p.a. The FITs are guaranteed for 20 years, and are scheduled to be open to new installations until the end of March 2021.

    FITs are available to everyone, including households, landlords, businesses and organisations such as schools and care homes. This means that you can rely on an additional income, purely from capturing the suns free energy.

    The main benefits of the FIT are:

    • The FIT is index linked and tax free, so by purchasing a solar system you will see a better return on investment than any bank can offer.
    • The Government have committed to making a payment for all the electricity you produce, even if you use it yourself.
    • Additional bonus payments will be made for electricity you export into the national grid.
    • You will see a reduction on your standard electricity bill as you will be using energy you produce yourself, rather than purchasing it from the national grid.

    Earlier this year much publicised changes were made in the Solar PV sector, seeing the FITs cut and new measures brought in for new installations. Although by many this was seen as a bad thing for the sector, we at Benning believe that there is still no better time than now to install solar panels. The FIT’s may have been reduced, but the cost of installing a solar power system has greatly reduced, ensuring that the return on your investment remains high.
