Landlords need to take advantage of incentives and schemes before they expire.

It is important to note that many schemes are time or volume sensitive. The Landlords Energy Saving Allowance (LESA) which provides for £1,500 worth of energy efficiency improvements that can be offset against income tax per property per year expires in April 2015 and the Boiler Scrap page Scheme that began in January only provided vouchers for the first 125,000 households.

There is currently grant funding available that may help you to cover up to 100% of the cost of making energy saving improvements to your property portfolio.

Making energy efficiency improvements to your properties can help you to:

  • make your properties more desirable to tenants - potentially resulting in fewer void periods
  • lower energy bills - creating more disposable income for tenants and resulting in less chance of rental arrears
  • reduce complaints about issues such as damp, condensation and mould - saving you time and money
  • Produce Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) with higher scores - ensuring your rental properties comply with forthcoming legislation.

  • Your property or your tenants might also qualify for grant funding under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). And, until April 2017, you can claim a tax allowance of up to £1,500 for each house, flat or bedsit you rent out, simply by installing some energy saving measures.

    If you start planning now you will have a better chance of being able to take advantage of the funding, and you will be prepared for forthcoming legislation which could force you to take action.

    Solar PV

    Solar PV is, by far, the technology which has experienced the highest increase in its uptake over the period 2009-2013. Solar PV panels prices have undergone an unprecedented downward fall, financial incentives to encourage the uptake of small scale solar PV have been introduced over this period and solar has the advantage of scaling easily.

    Biomass Boiler

    The market for biomass power plants boomed over the 2009-2013 period in the UK largely because of the introduction of the non-domestic RHI in November 2011.
    With a further introduction of Domestic RHI April 2014 Biomass Boilers are set to explode.

    Biomass Boiler & Solar PV

    The market for biomass power plants continued to boom over the 2012-2013 periods in the UK with a 65% increase largely because of the introduction of the non-domestic RHI in November 2011. This growth is expected to accelerate in years to come. Solar PV continued to benefit from FITs as well as the launch of crowd funding platforms to help scale-up existing solar PV systems.
