The Energy Group organised a Solar Energy event at the beginning of February at the Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall. Over 70 people attended eager to find out about renewable energy installations. Four speakers came along to give practical and technical information about installing solar energy (photo-voltaic or PV) panels and solar water heating systems.
They also explained the all-important Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme. The FIT means that once you have installed PV panels, as well as reducing your carbon emissions, you sell the electricity generated to the grid, you can expect a tax free return on the capital investment of around 8%.
