Chris' team fitted an EV charger. We asked for some advice as we weren't sure what to order as it was our first electric vehicle and he gave a great recommendation and was clear on price and timeframe. The team were super polite and really quick and professional and we would definitely recommend them.

My solar panels with Tesla battery had stopped generating and storing power. My original solar installer no longer deals with domestic customers so I contacted Chris Barker from Connect electric who came round the same afternoon. He spoke to Solar Edge and a software update had the solar panels generating the same day. Connect electric are not registered with Tesla but Chris still contacted them and found that the Powerwall battery had failed under warranty. I then asked Chris to fit a new larger battery while waiting for Tesla to recycle their failed unit. The new battery was fitted and commissioned without any issues. The entire process from first contact to final commissioning took place within three weeks. The pricing was extremely competitive and their was no deviation from the original quoted price. This is an exceptional company, professional, fast, extremely responsive with courtesy shown by all members of the team. I have no hesitation in recommending Connect electric and will use them in future for any solar or other issues which may occur in my home.

Delighted with our Solar PV and Battery System

We had a solar PV and battery installed by Connect Electric who are excellent. Chris Barker visited and produced a detailed proposal which met our requirements and was good value. Chris was always contactable, friendly, and very helpful throughout the whole process. Installation was totally trouble free with scaffolding put up and all installation work completed in one day. This is a very experienced team who know what they are doing and get on with the job. All were friendly, helpful and did a good tidy up on completion. Chris then commissioned the system and explained the apps that are used to manage and monitor it. Everything was done to the agreed schedule and budget. We are delighted with our new solar battery system and were lucky enough that our first two days in November were sunny and we powered the house on solar.

Connect Electric quoted promptly and competitively for an appropriate Solar PV and storage solution. Installation was neat and all the details of notification, certification, building control and setting up the cloud account were attended to. Would not hesitate to recommend for any electrical work.

Chris and his team installed our solar panels and battery and we could not have been more impressed with the service. Chris is knowledgeable, fair and efficient. He responds to queries quickly and offered us a range of options to choose from. A 5-star service from beginning to end.

Chris and his team completed the installation of 11 PV panels on our roof, plus battery and all connections to our domestic circuits and the grid in just two days even though they were two very wet days. He explained everything thoroughly and the team were very respectful of our property. We were also impressed with the scaffolder that Chris uses. Chris completed all the paperwork for the local Building Control and Electricity Northwest, and for us it was a very straightforward process with no nasty surprises or costly extras. Now the work is finished Its great to put the kettle on and see no cost register on the smart meter. With a payback period of 5 to 8 years we feel that this is a well worthwhile investment.

Spoke to Chris and he came down straight away - within 5 mins he’d identified the problem and quoted me the same day. A few days later he was back to complete the work and did a fantastic job. I know solar panel maintenance is not something your average DIY Guy can do and so having an expert like Chris is invaluable. Will definitely use again and highly recommend.

My original inverter packed up. I contacted several companies only Connectelectric replied which they did in about 2 hours. I had a quote 24 hours later. Once the new inverter was delivered a fitting date was agreed 48 hrs later. Chris arrived on time and the job was completed speedily and efficiently. I would certainly use this company for any future electrical needs.

When our PV system failed our original installer would not come out so we contacted Connect Electric as they were a Trusted Trader. They came out quickly, diagnosed the fault (inverter gone). They explained the options (just replace inverter or add battery storage) but were not at all pushy which is not my experience of solar companies. They did the work replacing the inverter the week after, very quick and efficient. There was an initial callout fee but that was knocked off the installation cost of the new inverter. I would highly recommend them.
