Free solar panels sound good, but buying them yourself is better
April 2010

Companies are keen to install free solar panels, but paying for it yourself could earn you more than £35,000 over 25 years

It is an offer that sounds almost too good to refuse. A company will install £15,000-worth of solar panels on your roof absolutely free; in return you get £150-£230 worth of free electricity for the next 25 years.. Read more...

Home-based solar panels boost the photovoltaic market
August 2010

Consumers are encouraged to install solar panels as the UK and Spain become the fastest- growing markets for photovoltaic technology in 2010.

The United Kingdom will become the fastest-growing market for photovoltaic (PV) installations in 2010, according to a July 30 report from market intelligence group iSuppli. iSuppli estimates that the UK will install PV systems amounting to 96 megawatts (MW) throughout 2010, representing an increase of 1,500 percent from 2009 where the total installation of PV systems was 6 MW.

Going green: Why it's good for business
August 2010

Companies realise that the recession is no excuse to ignore the environment.

Britain's biggest companies are forging ahead with attempts to make their businesses more sustainable despite the worst recession since the 1930s, new research has found.

The report shows that executives are serious about trying to halt damage wrought on the planet by the world's corporations. It should go some way to allaying consumers' fears that companies' environmental pledges are little more than "green wash". Read more...

The mystery of Prince Charles and his solar panels
July 2010

Strange. I spot a story in property rag Estates Gazette about Prince Charles applying for planning permission to put solar panels on the roof of Clarence House, his official residence. The magazine found the application on Westminster Council's website.

After far too much time spent on the website and calls to the council's press office I finally manage to track it down. It turns out Prince Charles is putting electricity-generating photovoltaic panels on his roof. He must have enough hot water for his bath. No objections to the installation so far - or letters. Not even from the Qatari Royal Family?

Green living or a hot new Investment?
April 2010

Until last week, there was very little reason to stick expensive electricity-producing solar panels on your roof unless you passionately believed in joining the crusade against global warming.

Now, however, there is a strong financial case to do so.

The Government has introduced new 'feed-in tariffs' for clean electricity, which means that a £12,500 investment in solar energy producing panels will pay a tax-free return of six to eight per cent per annum. That is more than double the best High Street savings accounts. Read more...

Houses with low energy efficiency will lose value in government plans
March 2010

Houses with low energy efficiency will lose value under government plans to intervene in the property market to help cut greenhouse gas emissions from homes by a third by 2020.

Estate agents will be given guidance telling them to take more notice of energy efficiency when deciding the value of homes. Ministers believe that homeowners are more likely to pay for efficiency measures such as solar panels and insulation if their investment clearly increases the property’s value. Read more...

Solar panel sales set to rise 'tenfold'
March 2010

Sharp, the biggest British maker of solar panels, is predicting a tenfold surge in demand in the next two years as a result of the Government's Clean Energy Cash Back scheme. General manager Andrew Lee predicts it will boost the number of homes with solar panels from 28,000 to about 250,000 by the end of next year. Read more...

Is solar power a bright investment?
February 2010

It costs £12,500 to install solar cells on your roof, but new tariffs should give you a return of at least £25,000. So what's the catch? There isn't one, says Miles Brignall

If the government offered to pay you £1,000 a year for the next 25 years, in return for an up- front investment of £12,500, you'd snap it up in a second. Well, that's pretty much the deal on offer this week after the government finally revealed what it will pay those who install electricity generating solar panels – in and around their homes – through the new "Feed-in Tariffs" (FITs).

Home owners to be paid for generating their own electricity through solar panels and wind turbines
February 2010

Homeowners are to be paid to generate their own energy, it was announced yesterday.

Labour plans to offer cash incentives for electricity created through rooftop windmills and solar panels. Any excess not used to heat and light homes could be sold back to the National Grid. Read more...

Is this a good time to splash out on solar energy?
October 2009

The panels are cheaper than ever and you can sell your surplus energy to the grid. No wonder, the
future's bright for solar power.

Real, gutsy solar power is as rare as hen's teeth in this country. By the real deal I mean photovoltaic
(PV) systems that convert sunlight into electricity as opposed to rather prosaic solar thermal systems
that heat water. Last year just 6MW of solar PV was installed in this country. Compare and contrast
the situation in Germany, where more than 1,500MW was installed last year and one in 10 buildings
has a solar power system.

Consumers face hike in energy bills
October 2009

(Reuters) - Consumers could see their energy bills rise by up to a quarter over the next 10 years as Britain faces a requirement to invest 200 billion pounds to secure supplies and meet climate change targets.

Energy regulator Ofgem said on Friday the investment would be needed to pay for new power plants and other infrastructure. Read more...
