Solar energy15 Replies
I’ve been contacted by numerous “solar panel”companies recently. Last week I caved and someone came round to do an assessment. Lovely chap, but I thought the prices he was quoting for solar PV, hot water and some heat exchange thing were a bit on the high side. I would like to have solar energy. We have a large, south-facing roof so we are in an ideal position. I know I could get an eco loan for the hot water bit and that there is some kind of cash back thing from EDF for each converter for the panels, and that somehow there is money available for energy production but if you go through EDF direct they don’t buy your spare back from you. Tbh, I’m a bit confused about the whole thing. I have tried reading up on the French websites about this but, whilst my spoken French is ok, I am struggling to get my head round the written info. Can anyone help? Is there a company out there who can fit solar panels without this whole business about borrowing money and “guaranteeing” it will pay for itself over the next eleventy billion years? Any thoughts or advice/recommendations very gratefully received.
