Remember when we wrote about solar panels and the benefits of installing them on your house? Now it appears that householders are rushing to put exactly that on their roofs! (They must all be loyal Hippyshopper readers)
According to guardian.co.uk, government subsidies have tripled the amount of solar power in the UK over the past year as people, largely homeowners, look to make nearly £1,000 a year as a result of installing solar panels.
This is most likely a result of the introduction of feed-in tariffs (Fits) last year, which pay individuals and businesses for generating green energy.
Are you planning on installing solar panels to your roof?
