Why was I refused solar panels?

I RECENTLY had my house surveyed for free solar roof panels. A. week later we got the result.

In spite of having a perfectly south facing roof we were refused. Reason - we have solid fuel heating.

I ask you what difference does that make to solar panels? Apparently the Government has moved the goal posts again. A few months ago it would have gone ahead.

As an ex miner who gets concessionary fuel I don’t see why I should give it up and go on to gas at great expense.
