Solar panels to be sold on high street
Solar panels are to be sold ‘off the shelf’ in the high street for the first time. Electrical retailer Currys will be selling solar panels in three UK stores as a trial, as well as online. The products will initially be offered from three stores: West Thurrock, Fulham and Croydon. After a detailed in-store consultation with a trained adviser, customers with suitable houses will be offered a house assessment free of charge. The cost for an average three-bedroom house to have nine solar panels (enough to cover half a household’s electricity) is circa £9000. There are also grants available through the Low Carbon Buildings Programme. Peter Keenan, managing director for Currys said: “Our customers are becoming more environmentally aware all the time. But this is far more than a ‘green solution’ for the home, it is also a perfect way of safeguarding against seemingly inevitable energy price rises.”
