....and it's tax free

That there would be changes to the Feed-in Tariff wasn't too much of a surprise to anyone, though the timing of their implementation most certainly was, and indicates to many of us a considerable lack of understanding on the part of the government. In the midst of all this it's important not to lose sight of the fact that at 21p per kWh generated installing a PV system still represents a sound investment - both from an environmental and financial perspective. Besides offering a pretty impressive rate of return it's worth mentioning that the income recieved from the tariff is not taxable in domestic settings. We always recommend that commercial organisations discuss the tax implications with their accountants, but for the ordinary householder the picture is very clear - a sound rate of return bearing no tax!
