Vanishing electricity cost
Customer Service
Quality

I am the delighted owner of a 6kw PV array and a Tesla battery. Our roof is SW facing and we have lots of tall trees nearby. We had lived in a grade 2* listed house for 46 years where PV panels are forbidden. On moving we chose Techfor Energy as Glenn told sensible facts, treated me as a colleague and did not try to force us into a deal. The panels were installed in December 2018 and the battery in May 2019. The battery has stopped us needing to use the mains and allows us to do the washing and tumble drying at times to suit. In winter the panels and battery will considerably reduce our reliance on the mains electricity – we will use Agile Octopus to charge the battery when rates are low. Software is supplied to enable me to monitor the panels and battery. Before the Powerwall we were exporting often more electricity than we were using from the mains. I have been extremely impressed with the standard of workmanship and communications from the company.

Very Impressed

Our initial survey and chat with Glenn was very informative and he explained all the options very clearly. They then fitted us in before the FIT Tariff cut off date and completed the job in the 2 days as estimated. They also helped us find someone to provide an updated EPC in the timescales required. Overall very impressed with the service provided and looking forward to the next stage of the project when we get a battery to store our solar energy fitted. Would highly recommend Glenn and TechforEnergy

16 Solar Panels over 3 roofs

We were quoted 1-2 days for fitting but as we had 3 roofs and wanted anti bird mesh we expected that it would take longer. But the whole work was completed in 2 days. Not only did the team complete what was quoted for but during the fitting they found 4 cracked roof tiles which they replaced from my stock - our roofs were fitted originally in 1960 and hadn't been inspected since. Also the scaffolders used were very quick and efficient. We found TechforEnergy a very efficient company.

Glad I got solar panels

Like others, I was impressed with the detailed survey, estimate and advice. The installation covers east, west and south facing roofs which increased cost but produces power all day. Techfor forgot to fit a Durco valve to the soil pipe to avoid panel shading and had to return to do this work. The electrician asked me for batteries for his head light, rubble bags and cable clips and later when I went into the loft I found the boards he had placed to walk on were still there compressing the insulation. There was no hand over at the end to explain how the system/app worked or what maintenance was needed e.g. washing the panels. In spite of these niggling concerns, I am very happy with the installed panels and would recommend Techfor. I am producing more than enough electricity but cannot store it. Glen recommended I wait for the newer version of the Enphase battery which it is clear I do need to cover the hours of darkness. In spite of numerous phone calls and emails I have not heard back. Somewhat reluctantly, I am looking elsewhere for a Zappi car charger and batteries.

Cannot recommend enough!

From the initial visit to completion of installation, I had the impression that Techfor is a company that is passionate about what it does and knows exactly what it is doing. I did receive quite a few quotations and Techfor were middle range in terms of price. Where the company stood out from others was the professionalism that Glenn Ashby displayed in the site visit, spending a lot of time going through the details of the project, with no pressure whatsoever to buy. This attitude is evident through the rest of the company, which gave complete confidence. All the work was completed as scheduled and the installation team were a great group of lads, working efficiently and with a smile, despite the weather!

I can't recommend Techfor enough - every aspect of the work done was to a high standard. Glenn's (MD) initial survey/quotation was detailed, comprehensive and clearly laid out the options without bias. The installation itself took place quickly and was top-notch, quality-wise. The guys were friendly, courteous and tidied up after themselves once the work was complete - even fixing an issue with our roof while putting the east array up. Lastly, the office team were approachable, efficient and very helpful with the FiT application process. We're very happy with the system. Excellent Company!

I can wholeheartedly recommend Glenn and the team at Techfor for their knowledgeable, courteous and professional approach. They were able to give full answers to any questions which I had. I felt that they were open, honest and straightforward in their dealings with me and I was able to trust them in and around my home in my absence. Work went ahead on time and as planned and I was given regular updates as work progressed.

Fitting of Solar Panels & Tesla Powerwall 2
Customer Service

It was a pleasure to deal with this company. Glenn Ashby in particular was excellent and patient in explaining the whole process from survey through installation and the system benefits. The system was designed to get the maximum benefit from the roof space available and the amount of energy that the household would be likely to consume. The arrangements for the erection and dismantling of the scaffolding was done in a very quick and efficient manner. The fitting of the solar panels was done in June 2018 but there were production delays at the Tesla factory so the Powerwall could not be installed until early September 2018. The fitting of this made a remarkable difference to our energy usage as we were able to store surplus solar energy and during the rest of September and part of October we used very little mains electricity. The inclusion of an "Eddi" controller also enables us to use any surplus energy after the Powerwall is fully charged to heat hot water with the immersion heater. The installation team were polite, courteous and helpful in fitting the system so that it did not have a significant impact on the décor in the property. The control systems were explained in detail and work well. All work was done on time and to the price quoted. I would have no hesitation in using Techfor Energy again.

TechForEnergy installed a residential 6.4KW / 23 Panel Solar System with microconvertors for us, with a Tesla wall battery to be installed in the spring, (due to the lead time on the batteries). Having done a lot of research and spoken to 5 different solar companies, I was very happy to proceed with TechForEnergy. They are professional, courteous and very very knowledgeable about solar systems and battery systems. They were very proactive in keeping me informed of developments and in helping me with the FIT application. I would highly recommend them.

This final part of my solar project, all supplied and fitted by Techfor Energy. As with the fitting of the solar panels, the Powerwall was installed with the minimum of fuss and is up and running as it should be. Techfor have done what they said they would, on time, and in a very professional manner.
