Solar news: 3rd May 2010 A solar water heating panels sales cowboys feature in Which? Magazine May 2010 on greenwash omits to disclose repeated false environmental claims made by the only company which they promote.
This supplier is Southern Solar whose MD, Howard Johns, is Chair of the Solar Trade Association. He claims falsely that solar water heating is truly zero carbon when in fact is typically has a 20% carbon clawback due to parasitic electricity use for pumps. In fact, the zero carbon systems are thermosyphons or are PV pumped, like Solartwin.
The REAL code green energy watchdogs say NO to an investigation of Southern Solar, as do the Consumers Association (Which?) who stand by their report, despite ethical and reputational problems of industry cover-up by the STA extending to the hot topic of Legionella safety.
Market constraint questions about the thermal solar panel manufacturer and solar plumber / installer industry’s self-regulation in the UK business environment are implied. The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) are asked to start a competition investigation into this and STA censorship, blackballing and warnings to cover up.
