Prince Charles hopes to green London home

Plans to install solar panels on the roof of Clarence House have been submitted to Westminster City Council.

The London home of the Prince of Wales could be fitted with photovoltaic panels if the idea is approved by councillors and planners at the central London authority.

Under the scheme 32 solar panels would be fitted to south east facing roof of the building

According to the application the panels could create about 4,000 kilowatts hours of power.

Details of the scheme were submitted to the council earlier this month and hope the scheme could encourage others to install renewable technology.

An environmental impact of the scheme revealed: "The installation of solar panels on the roof of Clarence House will be the latest in a line of renewable technology projects undertaken by the household of HRH the Prince of Wales."
