The UK’s rooftops to become power stations

Interesting press release from the DECC this morning (https://www.gov.uk/government/news/the-uks-rooftops-to-become-power-stations). It reads like it was cut and pasted from some of our musings on this subject over the last couple of years but we don’t mind that;  it seems that government has suddenly realised that the most effective place to install PV is on the rooftops of places where people work.  Matching daytime electricity generation with daytime electricity consumption is simply good old fashioned common sense.

We’re seeing a real surge in interest and demand from both owner occupiers and large landlords of commercial buildings who are starting to realise the commercial advantage gained by self generation.  

If you want to find out how much of your electricity bill could be lost on your roof,  give us a call.  It costs nothing to talk to us...
