Solar power is the last energy source that isn’t owned.
Capturing the sun’s energy and converting it into electricity is hardly new, but more and more households across the UK are turning to solar power than ever before.
Homeowners are investing in solar panels for a number of reasons. As household appliances and lighting can be powered by solar energy through the panels, electricity bills are reduced. A typical system can knock at least £120 off a normal bill each year, according to the Energy Saving Trust.
In addition to saving money, those who’ve invested in solar panels can also get paid for the electricity they generate, thanks to the UK government’s Feed-in Tariff.
Financial benefits aside, investing in solar panels will reduce a property’s carbon footprint and will also make it a more appealing property should the homeowner wish to sell.
Solar panels usually take between two and four days to install and should last for 25 years. The best results tend to be seen where properties have a roof that faces roughly within 45 degrees of south, and aren’t blocked or shaded by nearby trees.

If you’re looking to lower your fuel bills and lower your home’s carbon emissions, then ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) might be the solution for you.
Once deemed to be available only to those with big bucks to spend on their renovation project, underfloor heating has become a smart and accessible solution for those looking to save money.
