What is renewable energy?
Home energy renewable technologies and low-carbon micro generation such as micro-CHP, are good for the environment and good for your pocket too. Low-carbon technologies such as wind turbines, solar panels and biomass boilers let you generate your own energy, saving money and reducing your carbon footprint in the process. What’s more, with government financial incentives available, it’s never been a better time to install.
