Most British people want to install their own solar panels, survey reveals


The majority of the British public would like to install solar panels and home energy storage schemes if greater government assistance was available, a new survey has revealed.

In total 62 per cent said they would like to fit solar panels and 60 per cent would install an energy storage device. An even greater proportion – 71 per cent – would be interested in joining a community energy scheme if government support was there.

Home electricity generation and community energy schemes can cut electricity bills for consumers at a time when the big six energy companies have raised their prices. The average household will spend over £1,150 a year, according to consumer watchdog, Which?.

The findings, from a YouGov survey for Client Earth, come as the government has cut subsidies for green energy across the board, capping the total at £100m by 2019.

In 2015, the government announced plans to stop the feed-in tariff (FiT) scheme, from the end of March 2019.
