Homeowners Are Ready To Go Solar

Will Davies, aspect.co.uk MD

Last week was Energy Saving Week (24-30 October). In conjunction with that, we announced the findings from an energy poll we ran.

The results were positive – it seems our customers are both cost-conscious and environmentally savvy!

Over half (51 percent) would consider installing solar power in order to save energy in their properties. This was followed by 21 percent of those surveyed who suggested that they would look into water saving tips and 15 percent who would look into installing an energy efficient boiler.

13 percent of respondents suggested that they wouldn’t invest in energy saving techniques, but might consider looking at other ways, which would include making an effort to reduce the amount of energy used in the first instance.

The recent spate of energy prices hikes have been well reported in the news. It therefore seems hardly surprising that homeowners are trying to identify ways of reducing costs.

Equally, people are also becoming much more environmentally aware, and reducing emissions clearly helps to reduce the overall impact on the environment. If the costs relating to installing solar energy seem prohibitive, then I’d urge homeowners to consider the long term cost and environmental benefits.
