Every day more of us are getting the green message and putting it into practice in our homes. We’re making sure we recycle as much as we can, cutting back on waste and reducing energy consumption. Even so, a lot of people are still put off by the perceived costs involved in switching to a greener lifestyle. If that’s you, then you’ll want to know about the growing move towards microgeneration. It’s the posh name for domestic solar power, and not only does it make a serious contribution to the health of the environment, it can also give a long-term boost to both your bank balance and the value of your home.

The number of people choosing to install solar panels in their homes is increasing. Solar thermal collectors heat your water, photovoltaic panels take care of your other electrical needs, and they’re easy to install and unobtrusive. Producing 100% clean energy, the solar power is controlled and distributed around your home as easily as it would be with a standard electricity meter. Going solar reduces energy bills, insulates against future increases in costs by the energy suppliers and can increase the value of your home in the future.

Log on to our live Web TV Show with eco designer and presenter of ITV’s Dream Homes Oliver Heath and Helen Steed, Microgeneration Development Manager at npower who will explain in detail how microgeneration works, how it will benefit both you and the environment and how easy it is to install. Mainstream energy supplier npower has already equipped many UK homes with solar. Oliver and Helen will also talk about a new series of practical video guides on installing solar panels in your home as well as answering your questions live online, so be a bright spark and send yours in now.

Oliver Heath and Helen Steed, Microgeneration Development Manager at npower join us live online to discuss Microgeneration: Solar Power In Your Home
