With government backed Feed in Tariffs set to rise in April there is unlikely to be a better time to jump on the home-generated energy bandwagon that seems to be rumbling across the country.
There are two opportunities coming up to see and learn more about joining the solar revolution.
Sat 2nd – Sun 3rd April ‘Old Home, Super Home’ open days at houses in Balsall Heath, Bourneville and Walsall showing a variety of energy saving and solar features on older houses. You’ll be able to receive advice, be inspired and be encouraged by pioneer homeowners.

Sat 9th April – Open Day at the Balsall Heath Church Centre with its innovative ‘solar roof without solar panels’, generating up to 8 kilowatts. 11am – 3pm no booking required see balsallheathisourplanet.wordpress.com/solar-roof/
You’ll be surprised at the amount of energy an ordinary home can produce – even on gloomy days – and, with low interest rates on money in the bank and a guaranteed tax free return on investment, you may eschew an ISA for a few Photo Voltaic Cells.
