Why You Should Stay In B&B Getaway Cottages

Are you planning to visit to a different city along with your family members during the holidays? Although you might have considered booking a room in a hotel, it is better to stay in B&B getaway cottages that do not depend on commercial energy suppliers to provide power. Not only do you save the ecology, as these cottages are eco-friendly but you also ensure that you are promoting energy solutions. On the one hand, power plants that depend on biomass and fossil fuel to produce electricity have negative effects on the human health and on the environment. Along with power, they produce sulphur dioxide that causes acid rain -- harmful to animals that live in water and to plants as well. They also produce carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that contributes to the greenhouse effect by damaging the ozone layer in the stratosphere that protects the ultraviolet rays of the sun from reaching our planet. On the other hand, solar energy does not generate any such gasses, and is a source of sustainable and renewable energy source. It keeps on supplying power by converting the radiation of sunlight to electricity.

Thanks to advances in the field of technology, the prices of solar panels have dropped drastically over the past few years.

According to scientists, businesses and households will witness a reduction of up to 70% of their electricity costs with the help of solar energy. Thanks to this, there is an increasing number of B&B (Bed and Breakfast) cottages in the United Kingdom that rely on alternative source of energy to provide power to their guests.
