A neighbour has had solar panels installed covering the whole of one side of
the roof. I wonder what about the extra weight of the panels of the roof.
Also as you can see for about 30 miles at roof level how are they secured to
the roof. What about getting to the tiles ?
I am thinking about it for myself.
"Campaigning organisations and the solar industry have won their legal
challenge to the Government's decision to reduce subsidies to businesses and
homes which use solar panels to generate their own energy.
Environmental pressure group Friends of the Earth, which had sought judicial
review of the Government's timescale for proposed feed-in tariff (FiTs) cuts
of as much as 50% with solar companies Solarcentury and HomeSun, confirmed
the news on its Twitter feed.
Climate Change Minister Greg Barker said that the Government would be
seeking an appeal "as soon as possible".
"Regardless of today's outcome, the current high tariffs for solar PV are
not sustainable and changes need to be made in order to protect the budget
which is funded by consumers through their energy bills," he said.
The organisations successfully argued that the 12 December 2011 cut-off
point for projects to which the new rates will apply was unlawful. The
Government's consultation on the tariff cuts ended on 23 December 2011.
The "botched and illegal" plans had put thousands of jobs in the industry at
risk, the environmental campaigner said in a statement."
No plan survives contact with the enemy.
