    I think the main issue with selling a house with solar panels is getting the purchaser through the door. As Glover1862 states, many people are put off by the panels, so mostly these people aren't...

    Whilst this cash giveaway is linked to the Green Deal, in that you need to have an assessment done, you don't actually need to take out the Green Deal loan to access the dosh. Consequently the Green...

    I am unaware of whether or not this has been challenged in court, though I guess that it's likely to happen sooner or later. But if it does go to court, I would imagine that the court would back up...

    Yes, seems strange to opt for storage heaters over gas boiler. I would guess it was a replacement for older storage heaters, but still I would think storage heaters would put a lot of tenants off...

    This is the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund, the governments attempt to give a shot in the arm of their energy efficiency strategy, the Green Deal. It's a pot of money (actually redeemable vouchers...

    The estimated annual generation figure is exactly that, the amount of electricity that your pv system should generate. If you are on the highest FiT rate, which given inflation, I think stands at...

    DECC have issued an update in the last week to say that anyone using Green Deal to help pay for solar pv will be able to claim the feed-in-tariff. However, when calculating how much can be financed...

    I notice in the comments on the dm piece that the panels are more likely to be solar thermal rather than pv, which would seem more likely. It would make them greener, but 4 pv panels might have been...

    I also noticed that jjlandlord. On a nice and bright day like this a decent solar pv set up would power all the electrical needs of the average house, with plenty exported to the national grid. Even...

    Yes I think anyone doing a large refurb on GD just before placing it on the market is just asking for it to be used against him in bargaining terms. If this happens then it will be because the person...

    Hi midlands landlord. Sorry I missed this post when you put it up, and you make some very good points.

    Not left the building, just watching. Had gotten a little tired of repeating myself, am sure you all were getting bored of me also.

    In response to Grrr's main point I would point out that there...

    I am particularly interested to know how they perform in the coldest part of the year, when you need them most. The manufacturers are claiming that they work down to -35!

    Thanks for that, on an EPC, they won't be recommended as an alternative heating system where mains gas is available, unless savings of £10 per year or more are estimated, when compared with a modern...

    And you don't mind people making money, but that kind of thing is not for you. Well you've convinced me, I'm taking my panels down tomorrow.

    The feed-in-tariffs are legal contracts, the government can't get out of paying them. The tariffs that are available now are nowhere near as good as the previous tariffs. But as the cost of...
