Luton Solar Panels
Research carried out by Luton Council has indicated that a minimum of 4,500 residential properties in the town would be suited to installing a solar PV system.
With around 70,000 households in the town this means over 6% of local homes can benefit. Because of the suitability of the area for utilising solar systems there are a number of domestic and commercial properties that have already installed solar panels and are now benefiting from free electricity.
Some of the more unusual solar installations in Luton include a system at the Luton Town football club, street signs illuminated by solar panels and a planned 13,000 panels system which will power local prisons in Grendon and Springhill.
