If you are keen to make your home more eco-friendly, solar panels might seem like a pretty extreme way to go about it. But actually, solar photovoltaic panels (as they’re officially called) are fast becoming more commonplace.

In the 12 months to December 2015, installations had increased by 29%, according to the latest government figures, bringing the total number throughout the UK to more than 842,000.
