September 2012

We have successfully installed 4 kWp Solar PV; the PV currently produces all electricity to the house during the day which runs our appliances. We are currently feeling the benefits  and if we continually use them correctly we can significantly reduce our electricity bills by only using high consumption appliances during daylight hours, therefore, minimising the amount of electricity taken from the grid.

 However, with the property being a grade two listed barn we encountered issues regarding the location of our solar panels as they were not allowed on the roof, however, we agreed with the council they could be placed in the field to the rear of the property.

In addition, the garage is nearly completed and should be finished next month.
