The government defines microgeneration as the production of heat and/or electricity on a small-scale from a low carbon source. The various technologies have the potential to help us achieve our objectives of tackling climate change, ensuring reliable energy and tackling fuel poverty.
Government research suggests that by 2050, microgeneration could help cut domestic carbon emissions by 15%. In response, Ruth Kelly, the then Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (now The Rt Hon Hazel Blears MP), launched a consultation on microgenration that proposes giving people greater freedom to install microgeneration devices on their homes, where impact on their neighbours is limited.
With prices falling, efficiency increasing and the Government on side, it's time to consider it seriously - so below are some options for you to look at. We would be happy to put you in touch with a local company that may be able to help you. We work hard to build good relations with other similar environmentally orientated local companies and builders.
