Solar panels to be installed at Clarence House

Solar panels to be installed at Clarence House
Solar panels are to be installed on the roof of Clarence House – the official residence of the Prince of Wales.

Some 32 photovoltaic (PV) panels, which will be capable of producing 4,000 kilowatt hours of power a year, are due to be installed on the roof of the 170-year-old residence.
This figure is equivalent to the amount of energy used by the average London household each year.

Plans show that the solar PV panels will not be visible from the ground, as they will be hidden from view by a high parapet. Clarence House was previously the residence of the Queen Mother.

A spokesperson for Westminster City Council told the Associated Press: "There were no objections and the application was not considered contentious. We trust it will make a positive contribution to the Prince of Wales's efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of Clarence House."

Prince Charles is heavily involved in efforts to combat climate change and it is thought that His Royal Highness will be looking to make further environmentally-friendly improvements to the residence in the future.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800042718-ADNFCR

4000 kilowatt hours of ENERGY, not power. The distinction is important.
