On one of my brisk post lunch walkies, taking an alternative route, I ralised just how many houses have had the go to middle class home improvement installed – by this I mean the solar panels that feed back to the grid when surplus is detected. It is amazing the changes that have come about in a very few years possibly because school aged children have had their school teachers banging on to them about being prepared and ready for every eventuality with the weather. I know that letters went home to parents some years ago stating that changes to the school building would be necessary if they were every going to get solar panels. They did get them eventually and this subject didn’t seem out of the ordinary and the fuss died away.
Now the private houses are all clammering to have their own versions of the solar panel energy harnessing.
