Electricity and Gas
Having had the solar estimate, I was calculating how much electricity we would save. As we have a small roof, we will only make £217 in electricity a year. This seems a very small amount, especially considering we spend £68 a month on electricity at the moment. However, doing the maths shows that because of the government feed in tariff we will still make money back from them. It is sad to think we are not making that much difference on our electricity bills and probably explains why people were not using solar panels until the feed in tariff came about. We now have an electricity monitor which I hope will encourage everyone to use a bit less and perhaps we will be abl eto get our bills down a bit.
