Solar PV and Tesla Powerwall Installation
Customer Service
Quality

I originally contacted 3 solar companies, TechFor Energy came recommended. I spoke to the Technical Director Glenn over the phone first, before having a visit and chat with him. No pushy sales here, Glenn was thorough, really took time to understand what I wanted to achieve, he also shared a lot of reading material, external links and reviews to ensure I really knew what I was signing up for and to ensure I got the right system for my needs. The survey and quote was to a very high standard, options clearly spelled out and with competitive pricing. When it came to installation, we had a professional and friendly team, which is important when you have them in and around the house for prolonged periods. Every step of the way we were consulted, communication with the team on the ground and their office was great, and quite a few questions I asked pre and post installation have all been answered thoroughly. Glenn in particular takes a personal interest in ensuring everything is working well throughout the process. Overall, I highly recommend them as a company, and am very happy with my Solar Panels and Tesla Powerwall, bring on the sun!

I bought a Tesla Powerwall 2 from Techfor Energy. The whole process was handled very quickly and efficiently by their friendly team. Everything happened within the timescales promised and in the manner they described. No unpleasant surprises! The actual installation was completed in a day with a minimum of disruption and no mess. What more can you ask for? Thanks very much.

Tesla Solar Battery System

The workmen arrived at the agreed time, were polite and hard working. It took about an hour to locate the battery onto the garage interior wall and then the electrician needed the rest of the day to wire the battery and test it. All the workmen were really helpful and made sure I was happy with what they were doing. They didn't stop other than for lunch and the electrician worked on until he was happy the system was operational. He demonstrated to my wife and I that this was the case. Very happy with the whole process. This is the third time I have had work completed by Techfor Energy and I have always been impressed by the product, their understanding and commitment to it. I cant praise them enough.

Techfor Solar PV Installation - Fantastic
Customer Service
Quality
Value
We only wish we had done this sooner! Glen Ashby impressed us immediately with his technical knowledge, thoroughness and patience in ensuring that we understood the best system for our house and all that was involved in solar PV. He did the most thorough survey of the three firms we asked to quote, answered all of our questions in detail, adjusted his quote as we changed the specification and his price was fractionally the lowest on a £ per kWh basis for an excellent system. In the end we specified a large (6.2kWp) system, including an Eddi to heat the hot water (brilliant kit, saves on the gas bill as well) and a Harvi, as we had the roof space and were buying an EV. It is all now working brilliantly! Like some others, we have waited a year (installed in August 2019) to match Glen’s predicted output, which was 5,325 kWh, with actual output. At an amazing 5,903 kWh, this is 11% more than expected and our electricity bill has plummeted from £1,200 to £400 and the gas bill is down by £200! We have since added a Zappi as the EV has now arrived and every mile we have since driven has been powered by the sun (it charges through the main part of the day when electricity usage is very low) – this has got to be the way ahead for green energy! Techfor was brilliant from start to finish and we unhesitatingly recommend them.

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

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!
