Are you thinking about installing photo-voltaic solar panels to generate your own, clean energy?

John’s solar PV system was installed in November 2011. He has been monitoring how the system performs so that he can adjust his lifestyle and energy use to get the most from the renewable energy generated. With a background teaching environmental studies for the Open University and having completed the peer mentoring scheme run by Community Energy South, John has designed this workshop to guide you through the basic considerations.

  • Is my house / roof suitable?
  • What questions should I ask to find the best installers?
  • How does the connection the national grid work?
  • What do I have to tell my energy supplier to claim the Feed-in-Tariff and how much will I save on electricity bills?

The workshop will be a non-technical introduction to solar PV systems. Absolutely no prior knowledge is required! The essential jargon will be explained so it helps you understand what it’s all about.
