People who have become increasingly fed up with the rise in electricity prices in recent times have already switched their supplier to a cheaper alternative but theres even more good news with some suppliers now prepared to pay for any surplus energy that a household generates itself which can then be sold back to a supplier.
DIY electricity generation is on the increase and there is estimated to be somewhere in the region of 80,000 households who are generating all or some of their own electricity supply in the UK by using rooftop wind turbines and smaller solar powered units. This figure is set to grow now that B&Q have also started selling these kinds of power generators.
To buy a typical wind turbine and have it installed costs around 3000. Larger systems which would enable you to generate enough electricity to sell some back to the supplier could run anywhere between 4000 to 18000 depending on the size. A cheap loan could lead you on the path to self-sufficiency when it comes to power generation and the Government are doing their bit also by offering grants and tax breaks for those who are keen to take up the cause.
Usually, a grant is only given...
