generate your own energy

So you've done everything you can to save energy? (you'll need to if you want to get any of the government grants). What next?  Here's a run down of your options for generating your own energy:

Solar hot water systems
Rooftop Solar Hot Water Panel Imagine you painted a radiator black, connected it up, and stuck it on your roof on a sunny day. This is the basic idea behind solar hot water, and even in cloudy UK conditions a nicely set up system can give you loads of free hot water.
Solar photovoltaic panels

Wood boilers
wood chip boilers Might sound a little low-tech but efficient wood boilers are also really worth thinking about, particularly if you live near a cheap supply of fuel. If the wood is sustainably managed, replanted and is local, you can revert to the good old wood stove with a clear concience, as this would make you carbon neutral.
