My landlord wants to rent out my roof to a solar panel company called Voltaire that has a sim card in it and sends data to an independent source.

 

How worried should I be about that, hypothetically speaking of course?

How do you feel the panel reporting how much power it has generated adversely affects you?

What is your concern: the mobile phone signal?

Or the data being sent? (Which relates to the power generated, not anything personal to you!)

typically only generated power from the array.

You're fine with that then, or am I under investigation now?

 

Nice move

The information it would send back would be the same if you were in the property for 2 weeks, or away on holiday for those 2 weeks, namely how much power the panels generated.

So, how does it adversely affect you, or make you "under investigation"?

How the hell does it not, potentially!

 

X amount of power (generated as a result of Y amount of sunshine).

That gets reported regardless of if it is you in the property, someone else in the property, or you as the tenant but away on holiday.

 

How does it adversely affect you? Or "investigate you"?.

 

You should have more concern (and even then it should be "not concerned much"!) about the electricity meter keeping a track on how much electricity you are using : that at least is dependant on you, rather than merely on how much sunshine there has been!.

 

If you are that worried : https://images.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thenakedscientists.com%2Fforum%2Findex.php%3Faction%3Ddlattach%3Btopic%3D42704.0%3Battach%3D15799&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thenakedscientists.com%2Fforum%2Findex.php%3Ftopic%3D42704.0&docid=H5lsdV-FMqAfyM&tbnid=HkVOwvjdV5v-wM%3A&w=596&h=457&hl=en-gb&source=sh%2Fx%2Fim

Hi

 

The wireless information that would be sent using the device would only contain information about the energy and possibly information on the system to the provider.

 

As this is the Landlords property they can install these panels without needing your consent as it's the Landlords Property.

 

Now I can see your point that the installation of these panels would affect you.

 

As the Landlord would need to notify you of the works as they will need access to the property at some stage and the dates they would need access.

Just to add my 2p

Having solar panels should save you money. Unless the landlord charges you for the electricity you use then you will get cheaper bills.

 

As this is a 'rent a roof' scheme, the landlord will make nothing by having this done as Voltaire will get the FiT (Feed in Tariff) for any excess electricity generated surplus to your needs.

 

The access that will be needed is to your loft but that can be done from the outside if there are tiles (rather than slate). The panels will have a cable to will go to somewhere near the meter where there will be a box that is attached to your meter. The SIM card is very similar to a smart meter and sends data to Voltaire and possibly the electricity supplier so yes, they will need access to your home but the works will be minimal.

It's also good to mention that photo-voltaic panels have improved over the last few years and are more effective than previous years.

 

In a nutshell, it will send data of your usage but you should benefit from cheaper bills plus the simple fact it is the landlords house and he can do what he likes and he has notified you of the works so his responsibility to you is done.


If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Which is not in your contract, so you don't have to pay.
