Tests To Assess Impact of Solar Power on Fuel Poverty

London councils have received funding from the Green Investment Bank to pilot a project assessing the impact of solar power on tackling fuel poverty. Camden, Islington and Waltham Forest are collaborating on a scheme to install solar panels and batteries in 41 low income homes to see how they affect fuel consumption and costs.

Part-funded by the charity National Energy Action, the 24/7 Solar project will assess whether solar power can supplement evening energy use and cut bills. (cibsejournal.com)
