SOLAR PANELS & RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS The solar panels were installed by the current vendor in 2011, there are 20 panels fixed to the South facing rear roof elevation, they provide electricity for the property, the current owner manages the energy in such a way that he pays very low electric bills, around £25.00 per month and in fact has excess energy to sell into the National Grid, for which last year he received an income of about £1,600. The solar panels are owned outright and will form part of the sale .
We have been informed by the vendor that the property is not able to be used for commercial purposes.
