Solar Panels and FIT Leases

  • 0 ratings, 58 users enrolled

Course Overview

Increasing electricity bills have led many homeowners to consider alternative energy solutions; however the costs implications can prohibit many homeowners and Social Housing providers and from being able to afford to purchase and install solar panels on the roofs of their homes.

The government’s solution to this problem is Feed in Tariff (FIT) leases which offer support payments to encourage the generation of electricity from low-carbon sources.

Whether you are acting for a landlord or a tenant, several factors must be taken into consideration when deciding how to best advise your client. Experienced property practitioner and lecturer Richard Quenby will discuss the options available and will ensure that viewers are aware of, and know how to avoid, the pitfalls which this area of practice presents.
