Renewable electricity supplier Good Energy has urged the public to opt for more microgeneration to reap the benefit of Government’s feed-in-tariff (FiT) before the rate changes in April 2012.
The Government’s Comprehensive Review of the feed-in-tariff is expected shortly midst speculations that the rate will be drastically slashed.
The present feed-in-tariff rate however offers micrognerators generous benefits.
For example majority of Good Energy customers are getting a return of nearly £1,000 a year, on top of an average saving of £150 on electricity bills.
Good Energy CEO and Founder Juliet Davenport said microgenerators “deserve the government’s support” despite the pending news of slashed FiT rates.
“We believe that energy in the UK can be 100% renewable by 2050,” she said adding all have a role to play in achieving this goal.
The company published a snapshot of renewable electricity microgeneration in the UK where it said feed-in-tariff installations have “risen rapidly in the social housing sector.” The report noted that microgenerators have changed the way they use energy and have reduced their consumption.
Good Energy celebrated Microgeneration Day as part of the UK’s Energy Saving Week (24-28 October) organised by the Energy Saving Trust, aimed at helping customers reduce spiralling energy bills.
