Kent property owners, Mr and Mrs Stafford were looking for a way to secure low-cost energy bills, in the face of ever increasing price rises from the utility companies. In addition to offering excellent savings, Solar PV is supported by the government Feed-in Tariff which means Mr and Mrs Stafford will receive tax-free payments for generating solar electricity.
EnergyMyWay installed a 4kWp ground-mounted Solar PV system on a steep bank next to a field. The installation is sited in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). EnergyMyWay carried out the planning application on behalf of our client and secured permission for the ground mounted array.
