Minster confirms that Solar PV is a better investment than a pension

Greg Barker domestic solar pvInvesting in Solar PV can provide a better financial return than a traditional pension, according to energy and climate change minister, Greg Barker.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Barker described Solar PV as a “really attractive financial proposition”, and urged the public to consider investing in their own solar array. Barker said:

?Solar is a really attractive financial proposition. You get a guaranteed tariff for 20 years and if your panel is well-sited, it could yield 8% or more. That is more than an annuity, particularly if you are in your 50s or early 60s.”
