Solar Power Panels



Increasing numbers of households are taking advantage of the recently introduced feed-in tariff for home energy production. In fact fitting solar panels on your roof is one of the most important, and now cost effective actions that a green consumer can take. 


In the first research of its kind we have surveyed the environmental and ethical policies of 13 companies who supply solar power panels to the UK domestic market. 


The results reveal that some of the world's biggest makers of solar power panels are in fact amongst the least ethical with BP and Sanyo coming bottom in the survey.

In the same buyers' guide we also identify the most ethical small wind turbines.
