Official statement from Gwent Energy CIC on the 20% VAT on Solar

While this news is certainly surprising coming from a nation declaring a Climate Emergency, we would like to reassure all of our customers.

We have read the proposals, and as we understand it the increase in VAT will not affect our prices if you are a domestic customer.
If you are a commercial or community customer, all solar installations are already 20% VAT and reclaimable.

Please rest assured all of our customers will still receive the best competitive price on the market.

If you’re concerned, please get in touch with us at

All the best, the Gwent Energy CIC team.
