Burnley, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 05, 2012 -- Any solar energy installations up to the end of March will be guaranteed to start, unconditionally, at 21p per kWh for 25 years.
But in April, it will be difficult to get the current rate, with every property having to meet specific requirements.
Householders who do not meet these requirements will receive just 9p - and, in May, this amount will become standard.
In spite of the Government reducing feed-in tariffs, many people are still choosing solar energy because of its significant financial benefits.
But talk about solar energy in the UK and the conversation will soon turn to government feed-in tariffs.
Install Blazes solar panels now to get the maximum benefits:
- A payment of 21p is made for every unit of electricity produced
- A bonus payment is made for electricity sent back to the grid
- Energy bills are reduced when you utilise solar energy

Solar panel electricity systems, also known as Solar Photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic cells.
These cells don't need direct sunlight to work - they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.
If you don't want solar, be more energy efficient with new central heating boilers.
You can swap your central heating boilers now and save money ready for the next heating season.
As winter draws to a close, many homeowners are switching off their central heating systems.
This is the ideal time to begin preparing your boiler for next heating season so it runs at peak efficiency, saving you a vast amount of money.
Recent rises in oil prices have alerted homeowners to the fact that an inefficient boiler will be costing them serious money.
During the spring and summer months, it is vital to check your gas central heating boiler for leaks and that is not too old to function properly.
All tubes that may have been plugged during the heating season should be changed and all gasketing should be checked. Any leaking tubes or open seams should be fixed immediately.
Checking your boiler for optimum efficiency is essential.
If your gas central heating boiler is over 10 years old, it could need replacing with a more energy efficient model.
Consider replacing your boiler this spring to avoid the hassle of replacing it when you really need it.
Blazes offers a superb gas central heating boiler swap scheme, with money back on your old boiler.
There are a number of factors, which will affect the cost of your boiler replacement.
Fuel type: The cost of your new gas central heating boiler will vary depending on what type of fuel you wish to burn.
Boiler type: The price may vary considerably if you are changing to a different type of boiler. Combination boilers, for example, are more expensive to purchase but much cheaper to run.
House size: The bigger the house, the more it will need to be heated.
Heating infrastructure: Although it is likely that you will be using your existing heating infrastructure, you may need to upgrade or extend your pipework, or add new radiators, adding an additional cost to the boiler installation.
Boiler replacement is not as straightforward as swapping them over. There are a number of legislative rules that must be adhered to.
