The chart shows the expected electricity generation of this system and the income that is produced by the feed in tariff. Note also that an electricity saving is made since the client no longer has to pay for the amount of electricity that his system produces.
* Based upon expected 50% usage of total electricity generated.
** The feed in tariff is guaranteed for 20 years and is index linked and therefore rises each year. We have taken a 3% inflation figure for this illustration.
