I finally placed the order for solar in autumn 2013, and they were fitted in December that year. It wasn’t something I did lightly… the six grand or so outlay could as easily pay our energy bills for a number of years. Still, it isn’t easy being green, an’ all that.
I used a company called Solar PV Energy, and I’m happy to say they were fine. The installation went well, nothing has gone wrong, and the only problem we’ve had is a rattle in very high winds from one direction – a rare albeit slightly annoying issue.
I subsequently added a solar diverter to the installation, which pushes spare power into our hot water immersion tank, with additional and significant savings on fuel bills.
The whole thing is evidenced on this site through blog posts and information pages. Mainly, I keep being asked if it’s worthwhile, and I can only say YES! so many times before my voice gives out. I believe this installation will be paid for in full in six years, and the payments are guaranteed for twenty… what’s not to like?
