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.

I had three companies quote for installing solar panels on my property. I was surprised at the different recommendations from each company, and some of the unprofessional sales techniques. TechforEnergy did the most thorough survey, explained the system they were recommending and how it could be used to optimise my electricity usage, and followed all the guidelines that I had researched in Which? so it was in the end an easy decision for me to choose them. I was pleased I did. They organised everything as they said they would, the various staff who came to do the electrical work, panels and battery installation were friendly and professional. Everything went smoothly and any questions I asked after the installation were answered swiftly. I am therefore happy to recommend TechforEnergy.

Supply and install solar panels and storage battery
It was very clear from the time that our three bids for solar panels where received that Techfor Energy were offering the best technical advice about our specific needs and the quality of their bid. All three bidders were selected by having high check-a-trade scores, but Techfor stood out amongst the others. They were the only ones to do a structural survey during the first home visit. They were the only ones to suggest we consider installing an energy storage battery. I am so pleased we went with Techfor. The installation was in two phases, the first for the solar panels, the second, some months later, for a Tesla Powerwall storage battery. Both went well, with Techfor even rectifying a previously unknown sealing problem with one of our roof sky-lights. They listened to what we wanted and tailored their bid to meet our specific needs (e.g. control boxes and battery on the unused east side of our house, despite the electricity meter being, and main thoroughfare, on the west side of the house). The software that comes with the systems is fantastic. Every time the sun shines, I am glued to the apps looking how well the system is doing. I can even keep track of what the Children are doing (electrical usage wise) while we are miles away from home. I am really pleased with the system we went for, and really pleased with the way Techfor supplied, installed and commissioned the systems. Highly recommended.

Very satisfied with our Solar PV installation

9KWp PV system installed on 3 roofs in Dec 2019. Tesla Powerwall battery due for installation by February 2020 (due to availability). We were very impressed by the quality of service from Glenn and the team, from our first meeting/survey when he produced 3 options for us to choose. The software available for design is excellent, includes solar predictions and payback period. Installation went smoothly, the guys were a pleasure to have around, they were on time and resolved all issues and went the extra mile. After sales service has been excellent - the IP cabinet door needed adjusting, the excess roof tiles needed moving down, and when the bird protection mesh ran out they came back on a Saturday to complete. The Tesla battery won't be installed until February 2020 so I will leave a further review then. Obviously we've installed in mid-winter so will have better picture in 12 months. Runs our HW even on Dec 21st, the shortest day. Total cost £23k ivcl Tesla battery. Expensive but the right thing to do.
