Solar panels worth thousands of pounds stolen from farm in Gloucestershire

Light fingered wrong ‘uns have been pinching solar panels in Gloucestershire.  The Echo tells us that they are being sold door to door.  We guess that some people won’t be able to resist a perceived bargain but they’ll be anything but.

Once the panels have been registered for FiT payments at an installation,  they will not qualify at another so these hot panels can’t be used in any scheme where the owner hopes to claim FiTs.

We doubt that the villains who had these away will be advising their customers of such detail,  so if you are offered cheap panels from cold calling salesmen  (probably wearing a striped top and a mask and carrying a bag labelled ‘SWAG’)  our advice would be don’t.
