Solar Electric (Photovoltaic) Panels and Slates on Listed Places of Worship

By Diana Evans

The installation of solar electric (photovoltaic) panels or 'solar slates' on an historic place of worship may have an impact on the significance of the building and its setting. To help local authorities and denominational decision-making bodies dealing with such proposals, English Heritage has published a guidance note setting out the policy context provided by government guidance and giving advice on how to assess a proposal with a view to minimising harm to the significance of an historic place of worship.
