Homeowners looking to go green and get cheap energy may like to consider installing solar panels on their home.
Which prices for photovoltaic panels falling in recent months, energy doctor at the Energy Saving Trust Jessica Forster said now is a good time to make an investment.
"The rate of tariff you sign up to now you're 'locked in' to for up to 25 years - and you cannot be sure this will be the rate forever," she stated.
This was echoed recently by solar expert at npower Helen Booker, who observed planned reductions to Feed-in Tariff (FIT) payments to be implemented next year may mean people have to act fast to get the best return.
Ms Forster noted the incentive of the FIT scheme appears to have proven popular with the public, as she said over 90,000 microgeneration systems have been installed in the UK since April 2010.
However, the expert added it is also vital people consider the "less flashy basics" when looking to reduce their energy bills, with insulating a home being one of the most important steps a person can take.
