It’s no secret that our current levels of energy consumption are unsustainable.

If consumption remains constant, it’s likely that our supplies of natural gas will run out completely in less than 55 years’ time. It therefore pays to start looking towards alternative methods of heating before we’re left in the cold.

Alongside the environmental benefits, installing solar panels as an alternative method of heating can drastically reduce your energy bills. Generating your own power can save in excess of £200 per year on your energy bills, not to mention the fact that you can sell any surplus energy back to the National Grid for a healthy profit.
