A campaign designed to educate and inspire UK homeowners to adopt solar technology has launched today. The Our Solar Britain initiative has unveiled its website, oursolarbritain.co.uk, which aims to provide a range of resources designed to provide advice on solar and how to install it.

The site offers a ‘solarcalculator’to determine the potential of installing a solar energy system in homes and helps explain government subsidy such as the Feed in Tariff. A database of approved installers is included on the site.

Kamil Shah of Wagner Solar, one of the backers of the project said: “Our Solar Britain is a call to arms for UK homeowners, designed not only to educate and inform everyone about how solar works, but also about the incentives for adopting it – both ethical and financial.”

The campaign is supported by four of the biggest solar brands in the UK: Wagner Solar, SANYO, ET Solar and SMA Solar Technology.
