What next with the impending closure of Governments FIT/Export Tariffs in March 2019? – Doom or Boom?

HIES installers need not be afraid

In March of this year (2019) the Government Solar PV Fit/Export incentive scheme will come to an end, and as such installers will not be able to access these incentives through registration with Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

This should not prevent HIES members from continuing to trade in the domestic Solar PV sector. With the Fit/Export now gone, installers of Solar PV will need to work towards achieving higher levels of self-consumption to make their offering attractive to consumers. This can be achieved through products like energy storage.

Consumers want to take control of their energy destiny, they want to reduce their energy bills, and safeguard themselves from future energy price rises, Solar PV & Energy Storage are two leading technologies that achieve those aims.

solar pv and energy storageInstallers will be able to access the Smart Energy Guarantee (SEG) at some point in the future, which will enable consumers to sell their excess energy back to energy providers at prices set by the energy providers. How this will look and work in real time, we will have to see. However, achieving maximum self-consumption and usage should be HIES members' aim, as that is the best offering to consumers. 

HIES members install a range of home energy products, and a large number are diversifying into offering a range of products as they become home energy experts. This is a welcome change and one that will lead to better services and products being sold and installed into consumers’ homes.

HIES is the leading Consumer Protection Scheme in the home energy and renewable sector and offer protection on a range of different products, in fact, if it is energy saving or energy generating it is likely that we can offer protection.
