This website has been developed by the Solar Trade Association (STA) as a non-commercial initiative. To ensure your confidence this website does not take or feature any commercial sponsorship. The only commercial logos you’ll see are in the educational videos which were donated free by the companies that made them. They’re excellent, so they were worth including!
The STA is a not-for-profit industry association representing leading companies involved in solar power and solar thermal. Working with Government, the STA has influenced the design of the Feed-In Tariff (FIT) scheme and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The STA’s Solar Revolution Strategy won Government recognition that solar has a major role to play in our energy future. We know our stuff.
Much of what the STA deals with day to day is technical or focussed on detailed policy work. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to deal directly with public inquiries. However this website allows us to share our expert knowledge about solar technologies directly with householders. We’re keen you get clear and up-to-date facts on solar. Unfortunately that is not always the case in the media. We’re passionate about going solar obviously, but we believe we offer expertise and objectivity of value to you because we cannot promote any one solar company. But that’s for you to decide.
This website has been constructed with the input of all the experts within the STA, and seeking advice where appropriate from external organisations, such as REAL.
