THE SOLAR PANEL IS THE NEW DESIGNER KITCHEN: PEOPLE IN YORKSHIRE AND THE HUMBER WOULD PAY MORE FOR A GREEN HOME
Over a third of people across the region would pay more for a home that had been fitted with a renewable energy source.
More than half want to know if their home is suitable for renewable energy.
Changes in the environment and changes to their income are changing the priorities and attitudes of householders across the country.
Research released Tuesday 1 September 2009 by the Energy Saving Trust reveals that almost a third of Yorkshire and the Humber residents are happy to speculate to accumulate when it comes to housebuying decisions.
Of those polled, more than a third (35%) said they would be willing to pay more for a home where some of their energy supply came from renewable resources such as wind, solar or hydropower.
And it seems they are more interested than ever about installing a renewable energy source to their property. Of those surveyed, 55 percent said they would like to know if their home is suitable for renewable energy.
