PV and historic buildings

With Climate Change in the news and high on the agenda, this guide from Historic England provides information on installing solar photovoltaic panels on historic buildings. The guide gives advice on how to minimise potential damage to the fabric of the building as well as how to reduce the visual impact. It is part of a series of guides produced by Historic England to promote sympathetic, energy efficiency improvements in older buildings.
