Homeowners should install solar panels as soon as possible or they could miss out on getting generous government incentives, solar specialists are advising.

BSOLAR suggests that the FiTs subsidy for homeowners who generate solar electricity, which is 44.8p per kWh of energy, could soon be cut.

Peter Bladen, director of BSOLAR said: “we’ve had an explosion of solar panel installations in the last 12 months. As a result it seems very likely the government will reduce the incentives more dramatically than the publicised 10% in April next year. I see it could be more like a 25% cut.”
