CAT helps people claim feed-in tariff incentives

Published:  07 April, 2010

POWYS: Since the 1 April householders and communities installing electricity-generating technologies such as small wind turbines and solar panels have been entitled to claim payments for the low carbon power they produce under the feed-in tariff incentive scheme (FiTs).

CAT publishes its new book – Choosing Solar Electricity: A guide to photovoltaic systems – and launches a free information service designed to help people make the most of the new incentives.

Feed-in tariff incentives are designed to help householders take advantage of renewable energy encourage business opportunities in the renewables sector, reduce the cost of renewable energy and bring about a significant increase in the amount of locally produced green energy.

A day long course onRenewable Energy and  FiTs is being held at CAT on 10 of April. The course introduces the government's new Feed-in-Tariff scheme to support renewable electricity generation and explains how solar photovoltaics and wind power can be used under the scheme.
