Free solar panels for cheaper electricity bill

solar pannelThousands of homeowners are being attract to loan their roofs to a solar power firm in return for cheaper electricity bills. Those of them who agree to having the panels installed free of charge will see their bills fall by up to two thirds, but they also must agree to keep the expansive power cells on their roofs for 25 years and allow access for maintenance.

The solar pannels which cost £10,000 are being offered for free by firm Isis Solar. This movement for Isi Solar means that they takes advantage of a Government scheme that pays renewable energy firms a set amount for every unit of electricity they generate and finally they paid 41.3p per kilowatt-hour of electricity and could expect to earn £1,100 per roof each year.

People who can’t afford the typical £10,000 cost of installing their own solar panels can go green without digging into their pockets they must have a south-facing roof with at least 24 square metres of unshaded space to qualify and would receive a reduced bill for the energy they use. The surplus electricity generated would be fed into the grid.

Isis Solar plan to install an array of 3.3kwh panels on 18,000 houses within five years as Lawrence Buckley, its director, told The Times: “We aim to make domestic solar energy as accessible to as many people as possible, not just the few who have up-front cash.”

The Government scheme, which costs £8billion over 20 years, has, however, been criticised for being expensive because it is set to cost all electricity customers an extra £8.50 a year on their bills.

The Right-wing think-tank Policy Exchange said it would cost consumers £460 per tonne of carbon saved on this basis. They suggested that insulating water heaters or installing programmable thermostats could cost only £10 per tonne.

Yet another bussines who challenge you, think about it.

  9. Hey, I am viewing this site with the Blackberry and this seems to be kind of weird. Thought you’d would like to be aware of. It is a very good post nevertheless, just didn’t mess that up.

  10. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  11. Great article!

  12. Same thing happened to my Japanese Maple. We just tied an old dish rag around the base of the trunk where the exposed area was. Didn’t get bothered anymore and allowed for bark to grow back. Might also want to try putting tar on the exposed area and perhaps around the whole base to keep insects off and deter rabbits from making the bark another meal.

  13. magnetic generators

    I just wonder why this is still so expensive, we must develop this kind of energy and get rid of all these toxic energy plants around the world

  14. Perhaps because it’s now fashionable or perhaps all the story is in the beginning, there are higher demands and the supply is still low. Certainly in a short time, 6 month maybe we can afford this comfort… Adrian
