Landlords may be further encouraged to install self-generated power devices after it was announced that the financial incentives they offer give "more assistance now than ever before".

The spokesperson for British Eco Energy also claimed that an ever-increasing number of property owners are looking at such devices.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity or hot water systems are popular among those wanting to save on fuel bills and become more energy efficient.

Landlords are likely to be aware of smaller ways to green-proof their properties - such as installing energy saving light bulbs.

But for a longer-term solution to energy efficiency, energy providing systems are attractive, the organisation explained.

Thanks to governmental efforts to meet climate change targets, "the grants and incentives on offer [are] extremely attractive", the spokesperson claimed.

A grant of £2,500 for those wanting to install solar PV systems is still available, he added.

In October, the government announced it would enforce tougher regulation on the energy sector.

Ofgem will have powers to police abuses so that energy companies are encouraged to pass on wholesale price reductions quickly to customers, it noted.
