Follow up on the Solar Electric PV installation

Following on from the Solar Electric PV installation on our house in June, on the occasional bright, sunny day in Bingley, I often find myself distracted from work to sneak a look at the electric meter going backwards.

Our patience will be rewarded as I have submitted the first 3 month meter reading to OFGEM (Office of the Gas and Electricity Markets) via my energy supplier who will pay the ‘Feed in Tariff’. I’ve calculated our overall energy use at about 40% lower and I’m expecting a cheque late November and then every three months after that. Hopefully towards the end of the year I will have some exciting news which will take us on the way to our original aim of being a very green, low carbon family.
