Housing: Solar Power

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 16 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what her Department's estimate is of the marginal cost per household to the developer of installing an average sized domestic solar hot water system in new build housing developments. (157350)

I have been asked to reply.

The marginal cost per household to the developer will vary greatly depending on factors including the size of development and the size and type of housing in which the system is being installed. While BERR does not maintain data on average figures, evidence from recent projects and other work suggests that the current cost is likely to be between £2,500 and £4,000 per household.
