Coventry Solar Panels
Coventry has between 1500 and 1650 hours of sunshine each year and is therefore a city where it is possible to generate a significant amount of energy using solar panels. There are eight local firms listed who install solar panels in the city, and many of the national firms also cover the area, so there is plenty of choice for Coventry residents who want to invest in solar power.
The city is keen to encourage its residents and businesses to invest in renewable energies such as solar. The city council runs a free course for small businesses to teach them how to take advantage of renewable energy and get involved in the industry.
