The company adds that sales have quadrupled year-on-year despite changes to the Feed-in Tariff and delays to the Renewable Heat Incentive and following heavy investment in Dimplex’s R & D facilities.
Chris Davis, business development director at Dimplex Renewables, said: “Even with the new Feed-in Tariff rates due to come in to effect from August, solar PV still remains an attractive proposition for households and business alike. The new structure provides a degree of clarity and stability to the scheme following a few months of uncertainty.
“In addition, there is a huge increase in interest in renewable heat technologies such as heat pumps and solar thermal, especially as oil prices continue to rise. We are also working closely with government on development of the domestic RHI stream, due for launch next year.”
