Actually no, most energy companies are taking the view at the moment that Export Meters are too costly to be worth fitting, and are therefore offering "deemed export" - basically they just assume that you will use half of what is generated and export half, so they will pay you 41.3p per unit on everything you generate plus 3p per unit on half of that amount.
That said, they will still be rather unhappy if they find at the end of a billing period that your meter reading is lower than it started.

Sorry, new to the forums.
Not sure if someone has mentioned this already. Sorry if they have.
So it's estimated that the govt. will give £800 per year (est. on a 3kw system).
so.. here's my math:
£0.413p / kwh (less than 4kw retro fit).
ISIS installs 3kw system.
£0.413p x 3 = £1.239 (earning per hour from Govt. FIT scheme).
Shortest day of the year has 7hours a day. (worse case for whole year avg.)
£1.239 x 7 = £8.673
£8.673 x 365days = £3,165.645 / year.
What have I calculated wrong? pls help.
(of course, this money goes to ISIS if I take the free install option, and to me if I pay up front)
2for1 movies for £1, free Odeon tickets and more
