Shining a light on solar: not just an energy solution for detached houses with south facing gardens

Solar panels – the public know what they are, but just how much do they really know about them? Surprisingly little, according to research* revealed today by Wienerberger, the UK’s leading provider of wall, roof and landscaping innovations, which is aiming to make installing solar simpler for consumers by launching its new solar panel offering this week.

  • 1 in 3 people aspire to have solar panels on their home, however over 40% of people over-estimate the cost of solar panel installation
  • Nearly 1 in 5 believe that they can only be fitted on houses with south facing gardens
  • Price, cost savings and aesthetic are the most important factors when it comes to considering installing solar
