I have a tenanted property at which I'd like to install PV solar panels to take advantage of the Government scheme to encourage renewable energy. I installed electricity meters at the property as it was difficult getting tenants to pay for the electricity, now they use a charge key to top up the meter. If I have to pay circa £10,000 to have the panels installed, I'd like to be able to receive the benefits myself, not simply give my tenants free electricity. Does anyone have any experience of whether it is possible to leave the system as a metered system where the tenants pay for the electricity and the electricity generated by the cells is calculated and paid to the owner. The electricity is still registered in my name at the address. Anyone who has experience of doing this or any advice / ideas will be greatly appreciated.
