Solar panels - hugely satisfied with a tidy job, good advice & managing expectations - highly recommend!
Contacted 4 companies with current energy usage, roof dimensions & orientation for a solar panel array. I found Igloo Environmental by looking on Which? trusted traders, a local family company. Similar lead time to SoEnergy of 2-3 months, but quoted NOT for what I currently needed, but instead the max. that the roof could hold; 15 panels with 5 or 10W battery. I'm in favour of do it once, do it right so was interested in this idea, given the prediction of EV cars for the future? I was impressed with the quoting process to arrive at a ballpark estimate for an array of 15 panels with battery options and costs, so asked for a survey at £150 refundable if the work went ahead. Nick came out to survey, took loads of photos, chatted and measured stuff, proper quote drawn up by Warren. Quote based on 15 panels, Trina Vertex S 415 watt model (due to availability), in two strings, neat installation to 10W Huawei Luna battery, going into a recently installed smart meter. Bird netting added to panels during install to stop pigeons nesting, they're a problem around here. Battery in garage, standing against one wall, very neat and tidy. Scaffolding up for about 5 days in total. I gave up trying to overthink the type of panels that were being installed and asked the installers why (after all, it's their reputation), same with battery cos there are so many different brands and you'll end up reading so many reviews with different conclusions! Very happy!
