Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Glastonbury Festival organiser Michael Eavis has just installed a new 20 Kw solar system on the roof of a barn at Worthy Farm, the 'Mootel' where the cows are housed during the period the festival is on. The system is the largest of any system installed on a farm building in the UK and farmers are flocking to Glastonbury to have a look at it.
The new solar technology is becoming very newsworthy in the farming community because of the government's new 'feed-in tariff' whereby people who install solar panels can sell power back to the National Grid.
The solar array on the roof of the 'Mootel' consists of some 1,100 solar panels and can supply enough power to satisfy 80% of the farm's power requirements while also being able to sell any excess back to the grid. The installation was organised by Bristol company Solarsense.
