The Climate Change Collective – Latest Post – Installing and Running Residential Solar Panels
It is time to celebrate the latest post from ‘The Climate Change Collective’ of bloggers. This month it was Krista’s turn to produce the lead article and she has really inspired me. Talking about her own experience of adding solar panels, she highlights the impact.
Krista has found a big reduction in her power bills. Her post also clearly demonstrates how much this affects the environment. For instance, her solar panels have reduced 12.99 tonnes of CO2 emissions and potentially saved a number of trees. Any excess power generated contributes to the National Grid.

Read more about how Krista found the fitting and inclusion of solar panels at home. She added more panels two years after the initial instillation when she realised the potential.
This is the dream for me to have solar panels and I am setting money aside for this. They are extremely expensive in the UK but hopefully will become more accessible soon.
There are many flat fields of solar panels in my county. However, one large solar panel site was blocked recently. Apparently politicians considered it an eye-sore. I am sorry but looks don’t matter. To me, coal and gas power stations aren’t exactly aesthetically pleasing either.
In A Nutshell
Encouraging putting solar panels on houses should be a government priority. Prices should be reduced and grants available. This is a brilliant thing to do, after all.
The Climate Change Collective started from a conversation between Michelle (Boomer EcoCrusader) and myself. We have asked other likeminded bloggers to get involved and now have a passionate, growing community.
