David Morgan, tadea’s Commercial Manager, is giving two presentations, in Llandudno and Cardiff on 16 – 17 May, on how energy efficiency requirements now impact the Feed-in Tariffs
The talks will focus on what the requirements are for a building to reach the ‘D’ rating for EPC and what effect the installation of solar PV will have on raising an EPC rating. Only buildings which meet this standard will be eligible for the maximum Feed-in Tariff payments.
This is a change in legislation that is causing a lot of concern across the solar sector and tadea presented on this subject at Solar Reset, an event which took place in York in February. It was so well received that the invitation to speak in Wales was sent shortly afterwards.
“Getting this message across is vitally important,” says David. “There will be a lot of installers present at these events, and they need to be able to advise the people they work with on how to reach the Energy Performance Certificate ‘D’ rating. It means so much for the industry going forward. Installers need to know what a D-rated building looks like, what an E-rated building looks like, and more importantly what to do to bridge that gap and move from one to the other. At these events, I’ll be explaining to them how they can effectively and efficiently go about doing this.”
