"Converted to Solar Energy"
It will soon be 2 years since we had solar panels fitted to the garage. It is a minefield assessing all the company promises and prices. At times there was totally conflicting advice. Our research paid off and the company spoke our language, fitted the panels without fuss and started to generate. This has been a great boost to out energy plan.
We decided we want solar panels and went do the all familiar route with the rip off companies, (like when we purchased double glazing). I eventually called Solar Opportunities, from Garforth in Leeds, after finding them on Solar Guide, and from the initial phone call alone I was filled with confidence that I had found a great company. The install when well and we are now generating will quality materials fitted well, for half the cost of the rip off companies I first spoke to. We have a 3.5KW system installed using Solarworld panels. our generation as been as high as 3.6KW at one point so the panels are performing well.
"did what they said"
asked for a solar kit price and had 3 prices given, took one and am now awaiting fitment
"Quality not quantity"
Service second to none, all companies had all the necessary credibility to deal with in a friendly relaxed manner. No pressure. As in all cases someone wins and the others unfortunately lose Many thanks Contract negotiated Roddy macleod
"Every roof should have solar panels"
This is a 3 bedroom town house built in 1971, doubleglazed, insulated cavity walls and contains warm air heating system for winter. I have 4 Kwh panels on my roof and have generated 4950 Kwh in 16 months. I had 250 liter hot water tank installed at the same time along with Immersun which has provided 1420 Kwh of hot water so far. The elctricity taken from the grid so far amounts to1863 Kwh and gas consumption of 4700 Kwh. In March I purchesed a plug-in Prius which gets connected to solar electricity during the day. The car has traveled 4632 miles and has consumed 188 liters of petrol + 620 Kwh of electricity. My house hold energy costs amounted to £ 449 only. This proves cost effectiveness of solar energy.
"EXCELLET !! LOW BILLS NO FUSS"
HAVE HAD MY SOLAR PANELS FOR OVER A YEAR AND AM PLEASE WITH THE RESULTS - I HAVE JUST HAD A LETTER ASKING ME TO CONFIRM i HAVE NOT CHANGED ANYTHING WHICH IS FINE. WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW HOW THEY ARE READING MY SURPLACE SOLA ENERGY? AND CONFIRM THAT I AM DOING OK
"all the invited companies were polite, timely and caring: everything one could wish for in a recommendation."
Well, after a few phone calls and emails we arranged a few evening visits. Each company came, having set our expectations well. All quotes were issued promptly, and any follow up questions responded to within reasonable time frames. I cannot fault either the service provider or the contacting companies, good job, well done.
"Getting money from the supplier."
I've found it very difficult getting paid by the supplier , in my case British Gas. I've sent the readings off, and as yet no reply or acknowledgement of receipt, all done by the magic of the internet of course, but I'm still rather frustrated that they have my money and are so tardy in forth coming with it.
"Solar Panels Electricity."
Ii is working well. My present Electric mater reading always does negative, So E.On need to replace my present meter.
"3 firms contacted us very quickly."
I phoned Solar guide and spoke to a friendly and efficient woman. Who quickly had 3 firms ring me. 2 of the firms turned out to be very good, and gave us in the written form information which they explained. You did not feel that you were getting hard pitch sales. At a later date when we had more questions to ask these were answered.

The initial meeting and presentation was very informative. We did like Kuki as he explained our options carefully and was attentive to our requirements. At all times the company was very professional. Once we decided to hire Synergy the process was again explained clearly and went well. Our installation was about 1 week later and each step was clear and as described. The workmen were courteous and professional and took about as long as they estimated. Follow up was good too - they even part completed the FIT application forms for us and provided all the information we needed up front. Would certainly recommend.
