Prince Charles wins permission for solar panels on roof of Clarence House

As announced in today’s Evening Standard, Prince Charles was today granted permission to install solar panels on the roof of Clarence House, his 180-year-old London home.

The height of the parapets means the equipment cannot be seen from the ground and experts have been called in to ensure the panels do not damage the Grade-II listed building off Pall Mall.

The cost of installing the panels is believed to be around £30,000.

The 32 new photovoltaic panels on the south-east roof are expected to produce 4,000 kilowatt hours — enough electricity to power and heat an average household in the capital.
