Renewable energy firm SunEdison has launched a competition to find Britain’s “most solar savvy street”.
The company is offering 10 years’ worth of solar-generated electricity to participating neighbours in the winning street – or what they call ‘#BritainsBrightestStreet’.
Homeowners who take part can save around 45% on their electricity bills, SunEdison claims.
It will also donate a free solar panel system to the street who can nominate a local school or community building of their choice to be the beneficiary.
The participant and a minimum of five neighbours must have standard pitched roofs that face South or South West to get the full benefit from the sun’s rays and should be within close proximity of each other.
Mark Babcock, Vice President of SunEdison said: “Not only will the selected neighbours benefit from the free installation and maintenance of solar panels, they will also be saving money off their electricity bills by taking advantage of 10 years’ worth of free energy from the sun’s rays.”
