The glass laminate solar system built into the conservatory roof will provide silent, free and clean electricity for 30 years or more. Designed by Solar Century, the electrical output of the solar system is estimated at 1200kWh per annum - half the electricity requirements of a reasonably energy-efficient average-sized home. The system will save the emission of one tonne of CO 2per annum for the lifetime of the solar laminate.
