    Its certainly worth considering as I got caught out like you one year with a colossal electricity bill.

    What type of cover are you thinking of ?

    Depends on the area to be covered if its a regular square or rectangle then polycarb sheets are probably the best if angled on a slope of course to allow run off of rain and snow. Another consideration has to be open to the wind and securing them down enough to not damage or lose them.
