With all the current energy and cost of living increasing, the government removed VAT on all environmental energy solutions - ours being solar, you can see our previous post about it here.
This has meant a lot of energy customers have been looking for more information on how solar can help them take control of their own energy usage.
Not only customers but press…so with a quick Google search ITV had found us online and picked up the phone to see if we would be interested in doing a news spot discussing the VAT reduction on solar. With a slight pause we said ‘of course’ and then had to draw straws as to who would be doing the interview!
Two days later we are all on-site in South Yorkshire at a customer’s install to do a short interview and for the ITV Calendar news team to shoot some B-roll.

ITV: “Have you seen an increase in the number of people interested in buying energy efficiency measures for their homes since the VAT was scrapped and why?”
MW: “We have already experienced an increase in volume of enquiries, and yes some of the enquiries were to do with the VAT reduction but with all the energy increase it is a small added bonus to customers”
ITV: “Do you think the VAT scrap is enough to get more people to invest in energy efficiency measures, or do you think more could be done?”
MW: “The VAT is not the first time we have had such a scheme, previous years have seen grants and feeding tariff but this time with the VAT reduction it is on the energy which is far better for the customer”
ITV: “What difference can some of the energy efficiency measures make when it comes to reducing energy bills?”
MW: “The cost of solar has come down so dramatically in the last few years, that the return on investment is actually paid back in 5 years and with some yields of up to 30% now. It’s never been a better time to invest in solar.”
