Free Solar Panels
Yes. It is true that companies across the UK are giving away free PV panels. They are able to do this due to the Feed in Tariffs (FITs) for renewable energy. The Department of Energy and Climate Change or DECC introduced the FITs in Aril 2010 to incentivize homes and businesses into investing in solar panels. Feed in Tariffs normally pay those households and businesses that have become small scale generators for every kilowatt hour (kWh) generated. Companies can give away free PV Panels because they share the revenue collected from Feed in Tariffs with the home owners.
Finding Free Suppliers
Finding free PV panel suppliers is much easier than one may think. Using a solar energy company comparison website is probably the easiest, quickest and most comprehensive way to compare solar energy companies. Comparison websites offer unbiased advice on solar panel companies as well as industry and product information. The latest solar panel technology will be featured on the most reputable comparison sites for consumer education purposes and company reviews can be read on a regular basis.
Solar energy is reported as being one of the best answers to global warming and the dependency of mankind on unsustainable energy sources that are thought to be finite in supply and at risk of depleting if present behavior persists. The over dependency on fossil fuels is thought to put the limited supply of these sources at risk and it is suggested that some of these fuel sources could deplete within 15 years. With no functional alternative to fossil fuels being in place when this happens, a major catastrophe is thought to be imminent as the main source of the world's energy runs out. In addition, the use of fossil fuels to generate power is associated with the emission of fumes toxic to the environment. Greenhouse gases that are said to be generated by the burning of fossil fuels reportedly contribute to global warming because they are too thick to pass through the ozone layer so build up around the earth's atmosphere. They prevent heat passing through and reflect it back to the earth's surface
Most major governments are racing towards a state referred to as grid parity, where the cost of renewable energy becomes equal to or cheaper than national grid generated power. It is hoped that, upon grid parity, more people will be able to afford solar energy, which will slow down the world wide progression of global warming and help prevent the feared depletion of certain natural resources such as natural gas and coal.
