Solar Panels installation experience, from start to finish

In every respect, I found this a good experience with the Techfor team. The project was discussed together until I was comfortable understanding all aspects before proceeding - I wanted no surprises! Once agreed in concept, communication in terms of timing of the installation (20 panels) was proactive and helpful. As such, this went smoothly and in line with my expectations. The team that did the job were professional and helpful. All questions were answered clearly. No issues. Even the removal of the scaffolding went smoothly (different team). The project was done on schedule and in line with my budget. The stand out service here for me was the consistent pro-active nature of the service by the entire team. They seemed to look at things through my eyes first - before their own! It was overall a novel and refreshing experience.

Really helpful advice, not pushy, genuine chap
Spoke to Glenn looking for a solar thermal quote. His first reaction was that for our needs, supplementing our existing PV solution would be a better long term investment (about the same cost but far lower ongoing maintenance costs). He advised that we were outside of his area, but rather than just saying bye, he then took the time to walk me through a number of options for panels, pros and cons, installation sites (including the fitting to use) and options for expanding the system in the future with a battery, to use as a basis for talking with more local installers. It is not often you come across someone as genuinely helpful these days.

The process of working with Tech For Energy for our solar array was fantastic from start to finish. From first contact with Glenn, through the survey and installation, you can tell they not only know their stuff but also are very passionate about it. The install team was lovely, and in places went above and beyond to do the job correctly, rather than just what would have worked. We're very pleased with the results and the panels are now performing well, even though the weather is not ideal for this period of the year. It's great seeing the stats and analytics, I've become a little obsessed already. Can highly recommend.

The team did a wonderful job installing a brand new system comprising forty solar panels which were spread across two roofs. The original survey was very thorough and he spent some time discussing our needs and how best to accommodate them. The installation went ahead as scheduled and completed a day earlier than forecast. His team were a delight to have on site, being efficient, courteous, tidy and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Techfor Energy to anyone considering installing a Solar PV system.

Glenn and his team should be congratulated for an extremely well-managed project. As part of the quote an initial site visit many measurements were taken to calculate the actual generation that we could expect from the solar panel array and these to date have been very accurate (project completed nearly 6 months ago). We are very pleased with the professionalism of the team and the quality of workmanship. We have not had any problems at all with the system and would highly recommend tech for energy.

I had been speaking to Glenn for nearly a year before lockdown provided the final impetus to get work done. I initially asked to look at solar panels on my shed but was told that was not possible. Glenn's style was the opposite of pushy sales guy from a big on-line company who had tried to pressure us until 8pm some weeks before!. Glenn explained the challenges of our roof orientation and how to overcome them and was clear on benefit of Tesla battery but supply challenges on that so we ordered before Christmas and work was scheduled 3 months after with battery arriving in June. Scaffold was erected professionally and work was done to time . Slight challenge of the box to house the "teg" unit and associated electrical gubbins but I was able to build something to cover it . Top job overall and I would recommend them.

Tech4energy installed our solar panels 10 years ago with an excellent all-round service, so when I needed an upgrade I was delighted that they were still in business, The business had clearly grown but without losing the personal touch. The quality and reliability of all they do from start to finish is uniformly of a very high standard across the board. I couldn’t recommend them more highly

Sadly, I must have more money than sense, paying £250 for a solar panel survey that was the same as two other companies that were free! The supposed ‘design team’ failed to produce anything more than other companies.

Dear Customer Thank you for your review. We do charge a survey & design fee, (refundable against the order), as we use specialist equipment & send a surveyor instead of a salesperson, to your technical survey. Installation sites are evaluated for suitability from a structural viewpoint as well as a solar generation potential viewpoint & in this case, your suggested flat roof area was surveyed but during the design process, evaluated & deemed unsuitable for installation due to the change in roofing levels for water run-off. The mounting kit available for flat roofs cannot deal with different heights on roofs which are meant to be flat. As we use professional products for a properly calculated installation, we would not be prepared to put something together to try & make something work, just to make a sale. There was also substantial shading issues from the house & mature trees nearby & technical challenges involving sensor & cable runs for correct system operation. We explained these issues to you as the reason why the flat roof area is not suitable for a solar array in our opinion. Our quoted system was a ground-mounted array, which your feedback deemed unsuitable after you evaluated our quotation. The survey duration was 4 hours & the design work was a day & a half, so the £250 does not cover those costs but it does pay for some of the time, labour & tools and knowledge used to evaluate your solar potential & issue a professional quote. We wish you luck in your solar journey
Excellent solar energy installation performing well

Glenn of Techfor Energy is very knowledgeable on all aspects of home energy. He was happy to discuss a range of options for our solar installation, and clearly explained the pros and cons of different options - in roof v on roof, different panels, microinverters v Solar Edge, etc. We finally settled on a 5.7KW 16 panel LG system with microinverters, an Eddi to capture excess solar energy in hot water heating and a Tesla battery. The battery is still to install due to Tesla's long lead times. We already had a Zappi electric vehicle charger. The installation team worked cleanly and efficiently. The system is doing everything we had hoped. With the myenergi app and the Eddi and Zappi, we have complete control over where the solar energy is used. A separate app enables us to see the individual solar panel performance, instantly and over time. The peak power output is set by the microinverters at 4.8kw, which is achieved on sunny summer days, but even on cloudy days generation meets household needs and more. We have run our electric car for most of the time since installation on sunshine. In addition we have not used any gas water heating over the summer, and there has been significant excess power exported to the grid under the SEG scheme. We are delighted with the system and look forward to the Tesla battery installation, which will avoid early morning and evening grid usage, and enable use of low cost overnight electricity in the winter.

Add Tesla battery

Techfor installed PV panels in 2016. Additional PV and Tesla battery installed operational from 21/7. What a difference. Very little grid power since then and only at night if battery goes to its minimum setting. System has incredible technology managing house demand between panels and battery. Techfor are a thoroughly professional organisation headed by a very knowledgeable leader, courteous fitters/electricians always keep the workplace clean. We got more than Techfor said we would get from our installation. This is a big investment we are making so choose the best. Techfor
