Ok....I am quite prepared to eat my words on this occasion....I can now see why the solar tile people were very careful and demanded so many bits of paper to prove that I am indeed the person I claim to be.
This week I have had several phone calls from earnest young people trying to sell me solar tiles starting with a short lecture on the value of going green.
Renewable energy became the new buzz words this week....
I was glad to hear the words I have been using for a long time in some of my sermons...about looking after the planet by using the sun, the wind and tidal flow....but until yesterday they had a very hollow ring after the ongoing beaurocratic flurry of paperwork!
I honestly believed that we were talking about very small sums....particularly after the meter had been switched off for a few weeks .
I was wrong. A very handsome sum is now sitting in my bank account. It will pay the next bill!
I don't know if it's an accumulation of several years or months ...David in his last year did not keep the books...so I don't know what period is covered...but it is a sum worth having so if my previous words put you off I take them back!
I am not saving the planet...but solar panels are sending quite a lot of electricity into the grid...and it all helps!
