Even before she got behind her desk in Whitehall, Amber Rudd, the new energy secretary, was promising to "unleash a new solar revolution".

A million people now live in homes with solar panels on the roof, and she says that number needs to increase further.

Yet the residents of one small town in Cornwall need no extra persuasion.

Around 500 houses in Wadebridge on the Camel estuary already have panels on their roofs - nearly 10% of homes in the area - making the town a contender for the solar power 'capital' of the UK.

Solar water - folk need to pay at least as much attention to water heating as electricity generation.

They need to pay even more attention to insulating their homes properly.

You can always tell where the solar panel salesmen have been near where I live, since lines of houses have them, new and old.
