Peter and Waheed were very interested with this brand new technology – the marrying of recycling technology and Solar Panels.
“It should answer the need to deal with the aesthetic problems associated with present intrusive photovoltaic panels being put up in inappropriate places – such as conservation areas and church rooves” said Peter. “I really welcome the efforts made by Jericho – a Birmingham Social Enterprise – to deal with the need to find markets for recycled materials, and the high technology needs of future developments. They deserve our support. I hope that the City will do all it can to encourage this business here in the City – so generating both jobs, and an opportunity for people to develop their own energy efficiency in a more attractive fashion. They produce 2.1 volts at 10 Watts per unit – a whole south facing roof on a terraced house, if covered with these tiles, should produce at least 400 times that amount.”
Mr. Nazir was particularly impressed with the output of the units
