Installation of Solar Array and 3 x Tesla Batteries

Glenn was very knowledgeable and carried out a very thorough survey of the premises before quoting for the system. The installation was very smooth and the engineers were very efficient and neat. The system has been working very well since the installation was completed.

Install solar panels and Tesla battery
Customer Service

We spoke to three companies but chose Glenn and Techfor Energy as they were the most knowledgeable and professional of the three and gave us confidence that the system would do what we wanted. The solar panels were installed over 3 days with very little mess or inconvenience. We also had an Eddi fitted to control heating of the hot water tank and this has worked very well utilising excess solar power generated. The panels even generate power when it is cloudy. We were told that there would be a delay on getting the battery fitted but this was shorter than expected and it was fitted just over 2 weeks after the panels. After an initial hiccup getting the battery working we have now been virtually self sufficient for electricity for a week and have the comfort of knowing that if there is a power cut our battery will kick in automatically giving us uninterrupted power. Payback estimated to be about 15 years (at today's electricity prices) but really this is about generating our own green energy and helping to save the planet - everyone should be going solar!

Solar photovoltaic panels and Tesla power wall

We had several companies come to visit us prior to installing our solar panels. They ranged from Mickey Mouse, through average and then we found Glenn at Tech for Energy He is a very knowledgeable person who explained in great detail what he thought we would be able to benefit from. He actually survey aid the building prior to giving us a quote, something the other companies failed to do nearly so thoroughly. He insisted on scaffolding to keep his work is safe and the panels were installed in one day and a few hours the next. The Tesla Power Wall arrived two days later and again was installed within a couple of hours on a Saturday morning! Glenn explained the monitoring apps that we could use on our phones to make sure the system was working satisfactorily and we have just had our first 24 hours of total self-sufficiency vis-a-vis electricity! I would recommend this company without hesitation for the professionalism,expertise, and extensive knowledge of the industry. I also noticed that this company do not employ the salesman, thus not wasting money on unnecessary personnel. Glenn, the owner of the Company was the person who first came to see us and discuss our needs.

Install PV and battery.

Techfor is by far the most technically knowledgeable company we had in to quote us for our PV and battery installation. Glenn is a very knowledgeable person and the only person to fully survey the property and think about where the cables would go, look at the roof etc before coming up with a bespoke system for us. He presented us with facts and options rather than hard sell and a system we didn't need. He knows his stuff. The PV was installed in October and the battery in January - Tesla batteries are in high demand hence the wait. Both systems are working well. I would highly recommend.

I had a number of discussions with Glenn, before selecting his company to install a 6.0 kWp Solar PV generation system on our East/West facing roof. I was very impressed with his knowledge and experience, and he was happy to offer advice and answer questions without any pressurising sales talk. After a thorough survey of the house, he recommended a system consisting of 20 Perlight 300W panels, Enphase Micro-inverters, Harvi, Eddi, and Tesla battery. We also opted for the bird protection kit. The electricians and solar panel fitters were very friendly and professional, and the system is working perfectly. There were one or two hiccups in communication during the process, which is why I have given four rather than five stars for customer service. However, overall, I am very impressed by TechFor Energy and have no hesitation in recommending them.

We first spoke to Techfor Energy as they were the only company locally to offer solar panels together with Tesla battery walls to store our energy. They were clearly experts in this field and the thorough survey gave us further confidence in their abilities. The installation team was also very impressive. I would highly recommend this company and everyone should have solar panels!

I was recommended to them by another of their customers. The consultation and review of how we could obtain best results was very thorough. We also had loft conversion at same time, both tradesmen consulted each other ensuring Windows placed in optimum positions to gain maximum numbers of panels. Communication throughout was thorough and informative. All the tradesmen on site were very polite and obviously very knowledgable and experienced in the areas they were working. I got the impression For this company the work they do is a passion they enjoy.

Fitting of bird protection to solar panels

Removed all panels and cleaned underneath. Checked all connections and reinstalled panels with bird protection. All work carried out as described. Very professional team went over and above work described, even replaced a cracked roof tile. Thank you - hopefully our pigeon problem will now be resolved. Techfor have, in my experience, been very trustworthy and professional. I would recommend them for all solar panel issues.

We chose this company on the basis of excellent Which? Trusted Trader reviews, and we have not been disappointed. It was very quickly evident that this company knew what they were talking about in a way that went far beyond other companies we approached, and were willing to take time to explain clearly what the options were, without any high pressure sales techniques. They did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it, and to a high standard, and so far (it's early days) the solar panels and battery storage system have been producing in line with Techfor's predictions. When we ordered the storage battery we were informed of a waiting list to receive these, but in the event it was fitted sooner than that. We had some technical issues with our electricity company over getting a smart meter installed, and Glenn at Techfor tireless, and an enormous help in sorting this out. I cannot recommend Techfor too highly.

Monitoring Solar Panels

We had a problem with the system monitoring our solar panels. I contacted Techfor Energy who quickly assessed the problem and then devised and installed an ethernet based system which provides reliable monitoring. I was most impressed with their expertise and their approach to the job. All components were carefully checked and the system tested before signing off. If you need help with anything to do with solar panels, look no further than Techfor Energy.
