Post Solar Panels
Are they a good thing?

Initially I thought yes of course - however soon I see the government charging an income tax and sale tax for the electricity generation.

Do you own solar panels, if so do you see the benefits?

I personally think every house should have one. However I am told they contain rare elements from China. China I am told is restricting their export. I cannot say if that is so.

A lot of new houses come with them I believe. Caravan and motorhomes also come fitted with them from the factory.
If components do come from China, it raises the issue of carbon footprint; using parts from China means sending them on a jet - not environmentally wise. Britain used to be a great country for engineering, I'm sure we could manufacture our own at less cost.

Trouble is we do not support our scientists and engineers and they go abroad. I wish they would and maybe UK industry can get us out of our debts.

I don't think the government want us to get out of our debts - sad we don't support foreign workers etc... :sob:
