the electric buy in rate currently makes solar a lot less attractive, I worked out it would take far to long to pay for themselves. With oil it's a lot easier to shop round for the best price rather than swap gas suppliers & chances are you'd be able to join a syndicate to negotiate the best oil prices

http://www.heritagecookers.co.uk Does everything cooking, heating and hot water and made in the UK. Brilliant kit - had ours 8 years and wouldn't change it for anything. Actually superior to AGA/Rayburn ....
