Our huge congratulations go to Susan Adams, winner of the Gloucester Citizen, Gloucestershire Echo and Stroud Life ‘Win a solar PV system’ competition.

After years of wanting solar panels for her home in Highnam, Gloucester, avid Citizen reader Susan set about collecting the special numbered tokens printed daily in the newspaper when the competition launched last month.

“When we first moved into our house a few years ago we looked at getting solar panels fitted, but they were just too expensive back then,” explained Susan.

“So when I saw the competition in the paper I knew I just had to enter.

“Thankfully, it was simple enough to take part.”

Those weeks of religiously collecting the tokens paid off for Susan when she learned yesterday that hers was the lucky entry drawn out of the hat.

“I was so shocked when the Citizen rang me to tell me I had won – I didn’t believe it at first,” she said.

Roxon’s managing director Chris James said: “We’re delighted to hear Susan is our lucky winner and look forward to meeting her on Friday when we come out to conduct a solar survey of her home.

“Once we know what size and type of system is best suited to Susan’s home I envisage having her solar PV installed and up and running within the next few weeks.”

And, once her system is installed, not only will Susan benefit from seeing her electricity bills significantly reduced, she will also get to keep the all-important feed-in tariff, which could equate to several hundreds of pounds in tax-free income each year from the Government’s clean energy cash-back scheme.

Those payments are inflation linked and guaranteed for the next 20 years – a fantastic source of additional income which will no doubt be greatly welcomed and put to good use by Susan and her family.

Promotions manager for the Citizen, Echo and Stroud Life, Maria Johnstone, said: “The ‘Win a solar PV system’ competition received a fantastic response from our readers. We had hundreds of entries.

“We’re absolutely delighted with how it went – it was a huge success.”

♦ We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Gloucester Citizen, Gloucestershire Echo and Stroud Life for helping us in our quest to find a good home for our prize solar PV system and look forward to meeting our prize winner Susan on Friday.
