Most of the firms that are getting involved in the scheme (i.e. supplying and fitting the panels) want to concentrate on selling to owners of single residential properties, as these are the easiest to sort out - including the legal aspects, as these generally involve the homeowner leasing the airspace on their roof to the company.

(Not a plug in any way, just a firm I have come across recently in this context.)

I've just read the Daily Mail link and see that there is a small scheme about to take off near Malmesbury in Wiltshire - I can't argue with the principle of renewable energy - am sure this debate has taken place before about wind turbines. I'm happy to stand corrected but, as alien as they are to the countryside, if they don't do irreversible and they don't end up on Waden Hill then I don't think I object too much.
