The Kirklees Solar Project

Kirklees Solar Project


YES Energy Solutions launched 'The Kirklees Solar Project' to help make solar PV installations more affordable for hundreds of homeowners in Kirklees.

Scheme In Detail

The scheme aimed to help make solar PV installations more affordable for residents in the Kirklees area. The scheme offered free home-grown electricity, competitive installations and cash for the electricity generated.

Get paid for what you generate

By investing in one of our solar PV systems, residents could also take advantage of the Feed-in-Tariff and get paid by your energy provider for all the electricity you produce - irrespective of whether you use the electricity or not.

Solar PV – Typical Examples

The table below shows a typical example of how much income that could be earnt through the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) based on the current rates:

Size of Solar PV System Typical Cost Annual FIT Generation Payment Annual FIT Export Payment Annual Energy Savings Cumulative FIT Income & Savings over 20 years*
3.9kW £4,250 plus VAT £152 £84 £208 £12,644

These examples are based on a typical 3 bedroom semi-detached property in West Yorkshire with a south facing roof, no shading and a 30 degree roof pitch. Based upon average occupancy.

**Calculated using standard MCS methodology. Based on a property with an EPC rating of D or above using the July 2015 generation tariff of 12.92p per kWh and the current export tariff of 4.85p per kWh where 50% of electricity is exported. The Feed-in-Tariff runs over a 20 year period and is linked to the Retail Price Index (RPI). RPI assumed @ 2%. Electricity tariff based on 12p per kW.
