Anyone had any experience with this? They are considering installing them for
free and giving me half the profits. Just waiting on house deeds etc.....
It's photovoltaic I'm going for as I don't use much heating or hot water, the
cooker/shower is electric and the washing machine/dishwasher are cold fill. I
do however use a lot of electricity for a rather large computer and heating the
garage for an indoor aviary.
There was an article about this in the paper t'other day. It said that
most people will not achieve the output that is claimed and to look out for
other pitfalls like will prospective buyers be put off by a rented out roof
and who picks up the tab for repairs to roof etc. Worth investigating
thoroughly first I would think.
I used to have my own solar panels (although less of them), so I know they
achieve a fair bit - I worked out that their claim was about right, they pay for
themselves in 20 years. The thing about doing it this way is that the
government pays a lot of money into solar power (stupidly I think, but I might
as well take advantage of it).
AFAIK, a lot of people like panels on the house - it's a money earner after all.
And they look nice. And there's that green thing.
They do any repairs to the panels. Repairs to my actual roof not caused by
panels would obviously have to be paid for by me, as they currently are.
