Solar panels have arrived! Yes yes yes. The future starts here. This is the single greatest step in the revolution – ever!
Okay, so that is not really true, but that is a little bit how it feels. I said before I would get them,but I am now the proud owner of a beautiful new photovoltaic array on the roof of my house. It is a small system, but it should produce around 900 kWh a year, enough for about 65% of our electricity. The panels were assembled locally, so green jobs for everyone… . Not only that, but I am filled with a warm and wholly inaccurate sense of self sufficiency. That is worth £3900 any day.
Here are a couple of photos taken from the scaffolding leading up to the roof. Actually, I am thinking of keeping the scaffolding as the view from the top is amazing. We were up having a beer, and London is looking particularly beautiful at the moment. ::continue::
