Is there still funding available for Solar installations? Seems to be a lot of confusion when researching this. We receive Working and Child Tax Credits and also have an adult son who receives PIP. 
There seem to be loads of companies stating there is, some are obviously not legit i.e. wrong phone numbers, just email a lao application. One I spoke to said they only have finding for single parent households.
So if anyone has any advice or recommendations that would be very helpful.

    The only generally-available option is the ECO scheme which is open to low-income households in low-efficiency housing.

    You could look at community and council solar scheme, might be a bit competitively priced.  Some electric providers to solar installations (sub contracting).  If you have good credit score and reasonable prospect of stability, you could consider having this installed on CC 0%.  But i would strongly advice or suggest to do the math.
