LETTER: New builds should all have solar panels

I must voice my disagreement with Ian Wragg over his comments on solar panels

I had them installed three years ago at no cost to me and they have produced 10,905kw/h which has saved 4.7 tonnes of carbon dioxide being emitted, while my electric bill has been cut by more than 50 per cent.

The company which supplied them does get the feed-in tariff, which is less than I have saved.

A report has come out saying if you fill the spare land in the western Sahara with solars, enough electricity would be produced for the whole planet.

I would make it law for all new builds to have them and also stop the fracking full stop.
