Selkirk Parish Church was able to obtain an 80% grant and loan to install an array of photovoltaic panels on the roof of their B listed building. Most church roofs are ideal due to their traditional east-west orientation. They receive payment through the Feed in Tariff Scheme (FiTs): FiTs: 6500 x 37.8p kWh: £2457.00 (indexed linked for 25 years). Export Bonus: 3250 x 3.1p kWh: £100.75 (indexed linked for 25 years). Reduced Bills: 3000 x 14p kWh: £420.00 (tariffs certain to increase). Total £2977.75: Payback time (with grant) 6.6 years (without grant) 13.2 years. The FiT tariff for new schemes has been reduced to reflect the drop in costs of installations, therefore payback time would be 15.5 years for this project (for a total cost of £37,500).
