I can't really comment on the social media aspect as I never bother with it. But apparently, from everything I've read on the forum regarding social media, it is a huge platform for misinformation, which doesn't really surprise me to be honest.I liked the one about social media.
My wife's mother and our next door neighbour both have solar panels. I've never even looked into it, but the situation as it stands regarding spiralling costs, will no doubt have me picking their brains very soon.solar panels
You'd think that solar panels in Blighty would indeed have an extremely obvious flaw as you quite rightly mentioned. Apparently not though, they seem to be working very well for my mother in law and our neighbours.Does solar even work in England?
A couple of weeks ago had a young guy looked like he just finished high school ring the doorbell. He said Sir would you like free electricity red flag. I don't believe anything is free lol. He was trying to sell me solar panels.I had a rather enlightening chat with the neighbour today regarding his solar panels and whether it's worth me getting some on our roof.
He currently pays around £200 per month for gas and electric combined, we pay....wait for it....just shy of £200 per month gas and electric combined!!! WTF!
Admittedly we are due another increase with our supplier, my neighbour has already had their increase a few weeks ago. So ours, realistically will go above £200, though probably not by a great deal.
I was flabbergasted that there isn't a great deal between us. I thought the difference in bills would be shocking.
He went onto say that they aren't what they're cracked up to be, and it's certainly not the case that you get free electric plus a surplus too which you sell back to the grid, not by a long shot.
So, it would seem that solar panels are a non starter.
If he's going door to door selling solar panels...there's a good chance he didn't finish high school...A couple of weeks ago had a young guy looked like he just finished high school ring the doorbell.
