Northern Ireland shock. A good idea

Seems that Northern Ireland is doing something to deal with the over dependence on imported fuel. Now if only we could match this. From Belfast Telegraph
Solar roof panels are to become compulsory on all new houses in Northern Ireland from April 2008, the Secretary of State announced today. Peter Hain - who disclosed that he had cut his own energy bill in half by installing panels on his home in Wales - said he was committed to "green energy". Mr Hain announced the proposed change to building regulations in Northern Ireland as he launched an £8m renewable energy household programme. The grant aid, part of the Government's £59m renewable energy fund, will help 4,000 householders to install renewable energy systems in their homes.
