What suits your location?
The factors to consider for your property are:
- for solar power: which way your roof faces
- for solar water heating, heat pumps and wood-fuelled: space inside and outside
- for hydroelectricity, whether you have a stream or river running past
- for wind turbines, what the average wind speed is.
What suits your needs?
Looking at it the other way, do you want to generate heat, or electricity, or both?
- Solar panels (PV)
- Wind turbines
Generate electricity and heat
Micro-CHP (micro combined heat and power)
