Marlow is currently paying in the region of £50 million a year to ‘those in power’ via all our various energy bills. Soon they may be paying us...

Solar panelsOurs and two other homes in Marlow have had solar panels fitted this month. We are proud of our shiny solar roofs, but what’s even better is that we are well on our way to enrolling 100 homes (the target over 12 months) to do the same.
