Solar Guide, the free online resource for homeowners and engineers regarding all solar-related issues, has launched a new version of their Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Feed-In Tariff Calculator, which can now be embedded on any solar installers’ website.
The calculator allows potential customers, wishing to install solar PV panels on their buildings, to calculate what size a solar panel system they need, how much it will cost and how much money they could be paid back from the Government’s Feed-In Tariff (FIT).
The Feed-In Tariff offers homeowners, businesses and communities the financial benefits of lowering their energy bills and receiving payments for generating their own renewable electricity. An added attraction is the potential to receive more cash by exporting any unused electricity to the power grid.
By offering solar installers and suppliers the ability to embed the calculator on their own websites Solar Guide is providing more households and businesses with this useful estimation service.
Explaining the benefits of the solar calculator, David Holmes founder of Solar Guide, said: “The Solar Guide calculator is the most comprehensive tool of its kind available. Not only does it calculate solar radiation in various locations, it gives accurate figures which take into account return-on-investment, the expected AER (annual equivalent rate) as well as factoring in the Feed-In Tariff. What’s more our calculator will give you a realistic insight into the losses from voltage and the seasonal variation you can expect.
“Furthermore, it’s the only calculator that you can embed on your own website, and it’s free!”
