Bring on the sunshine...


Here is the before...


And here is the after...

Yes we've had solar panels fitted yesterday and they come to connect them up today.
Hopefully I'll be reporting on lots of money saved.

After Hubby did all the research our next door neighbour signed up for them too, then went on holiday last Saturday with the parting words to Hubby of "If you can get it all sorted while we're away that would be good" he was joking of course! However the first surveyor came Tuesday to see that the roof is structurally sound, he approved both houses. The second surveyor came Wednesday to check the energy efficiency of the property which entitles us to the government payments for the electricity we sell back to the grid, he did both houses. The panel fitters did both houses at the same time too of course.  So as our neighboursP&A are due home late this afternoon and the electricians are due this morning his wish will be granted, usually we just feed his fish ha ha ha.

How wonderful - I hope it saves you lots of money.
I know a family who have one of those windmills on their house and the electricity company ends up paying them because they generate more than they use!

Actually Hannah all these domestic systems sell back to the grid as there is no way to store what is made. So if I'm using an appliance while the sun is shining then it's free energy, if I'm not using it while the sun is shining then it goes to the grid and if we need to use more than we are making then we feed off the grid. Hope that makes sense :)
