THE SOLAR panels on the roof didn’t disappoint in February. They belted out a heap of electricity – or bijli as we prefer – despite this month being as dour as an Aberdonian when he’s forced to shell out a shilling for the toilet.
Aye, it’s true there were some days where Mr Sun hardly had a chance to see the wood for the trees, but the golden thing in the sun continues to shine and if it does, the panels pick up on it, no problem at all.
We wonder, however, whether there would be any chance of amortisation without government grants to speed the Kyoceras and Sanyos of this world on their way.
Although we’re not against pigeons, like London mayor Ken Livingstone, we also wonder how to clean the doodoo off array number one of 15 without climbing on the roof and risking life and limb or using catapults loaded with lumps of bread so they roost somewhere else.
The preferred method is little spikes so the rock pigeons feel unsafe when they alight. ♥
