Community Workshop on Solar Electricity

17/05/2010 at 2:06 pm | Posted in Solar power | Leave a comment

Any building can be a power station! The roof of my terraced house in Balsall Heath has been generating clean electricity from seven solar panels since 5th May. They are feeding more power into the local electricty grid than the house is using; so it is a power station, in a small way.

A Community Workshop on Solar Electricity will be held there on Saturday 12th June (10am repeated at 2pm).

We will cover how such systems work, how to get one installed at home, and the benefits and costs of doing this, including the new government ‘feed in tariff’ payments.

To book a place please phone 440 7919, or email bhiop[at] There is a free information sheet on ‘Using Solar Power at Home’ on request.
