Lisa and Mark, the owners of Pant Golau have just finished installing solar panels on the roof of their pretty little cottage near Llanbedr. Mark was explaining that the system was capable of producing 2.2kw per hour on a sunny day. And that the government would now pay them just over 40p for each kw they produced. This is in addition to getting free electricity of course. With an installation cost of £9000 from Platinum Plumbing, Mark and Lisa hope the system will have paid for itself in 8 years.
So as you sit in the sun on the raised patio, gin and tonic in hand and enjoying the views, you can be further comforted by the knowledge that you’re staying in a cottage which is just that little bit greener than most.
