Commenting in light of a number of recent cases which have been brought to the attention of elected representatives locally, Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has urged people to consider the full implications of packages which are currently being offered by some companies in relation to what they term ‘free solar panels’.

Several companies have been making contact with local home owners offering promises of significant savings on their home electricity bills. The companies, which offer to install solar panels free of charge, grant free usage of electricity generated by the panels. In return, the companies retain any surplus energy not used by the homeowner and sell this back to the national grid. “Whilst the business model does provide some potential to make saving on energy bills, people need to be entering into any such agreements with their eyes wide open,” said Boylan.
