Solar panel installations in Portsmouth may prompt interest in PV training

A project to install solar panels on council houses in Portsmouth has kicked off, potentially prompting tradesmen in the area to consider signing up for PV training courses.

Commenting after the first microgenerators were fitted, executive member for housing at Portsmouth City Council Steven Wylie described how proud he is that the local authority has carried out the green scheme.

Technicians who have completed PV courses will no doubt have been hired by the council to fit the solar panels on the Whale Island Way building in the city's Landport district.

Councillor Wylie pointed out that the project has dual positive outcomes, since it should lower people's energy bills and help the environment.

"These panels are an exciting step towards how we could be refurbishing houses in the future," he added.

This week, Eaga secured a number of new contracts that will see up to 220,000 houses fitted with solar panels in total.
