According to uSwitch.com, there was a considerable rise in the number of homes installing panels last month, the latest figures show. Energy regulator Ofgem revealed that 2,257 homes installed the panels in August, up from 1,700 in July and 1,400 in June. This shows just how the popularity of panelling is beginning to take off across the UK as homeowners realise just how much money they could be saving on energy bills once they are installed.
Solar panels in Cumbria and solar panels in Cheshire may seem like a pricey investment at first, but when you think that you will be benefitting from reduced bills for up to or above 30 years, you will soon come to notice that they are paying for themselves. Many homeowners become attached to their property, so if you are sure that you are likely to live in the house for a substantial amount of time, it makes good financial sense to purchase them.
However, if you want to sell up at any time, do not go thinking that your money has been wasted. As the popularity of panels grows, it means that future home buyers will only want to move into homes that have them readily installed, rather than does still relying on conventional methods of energy. The panelling does not even have to spoil the look of your home, as once they are installed on a roof they will be virtually unnoticeable to the passer by who will be none the wiser.
Producing your own renewable energy makes for a much healthier planet, as the panels will give you hot water and electricity only when you need it. To ignore this fantastic bit of modern technology would truly be madness and would leave you behind the times in future years, so think again.
