EPC information


Roughly 80% of all domestic properties are capable of meeting the new Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) band D requirements for claiming the higher FIT rates, once a solar PV system is installed together with a few low cost energy efficiency measures.

Leeds Solar produce an EPC as standard during our solar PV quote process, and if necessary will produce an additional package of low cost energy efficiency measures to bring your building up to the band D EPC rating.
