Meet Mr & Mrs Bing
Retired finance professional Gordon Bing and wife Patricia put any fiscal motives aside when they chose a 3.04kWp solar PV installation, focusing instead on reducing their carbon footprint and making their home energy efficient.
“My main purpose was to try to be a bit more independent and to use what we’ve already got available in the world to generate energy,” starts Gordon. “Just reading up about it I realised that energy prices are going up all the time and it’s a very good deal with 25 years guaranteed payback. I suppose with hindsight, it is a very good earner but that wasn’t our main motive at all.”
Gordon looked to solar-powered technology to assist with water heating and was keen to embrace the PV concept after reaping the rewards of the solar thermal panels installed three years ago.
“We put the PV in at the end of January 2011, in the pouring rain!” explains Gordon. “I put a meter reading in at the end of March and in that brief winter period, the meter reading was 230 and now it’s 1400 in just a few months.”
The 16-panel array is a sizeable addition to the tiled roof but Gordon isn’t worried about the set-up causing any problems for future resale – quite the opposite. “I also think if you’ve got everything already on board it can help if you come to sell,” he says. “Electricity prices aren’t going to go down in the future so I wanted to get it done as soon as possible.”
