I fully support renewables but it looks untidy with the gaps etc.

Solar tiles might have been better, and blended it in with the adjacent property.

To encourage good uptake it needs to look good, blend in as best as possible, perform well and be affordable. Quite a challenge :wink:

if i could work out how to put a picture up i would show you my panels
18 x 210watt sanyo and 40 vac tubes for hot water. 2 years 5 months no problems and now my studer 8 kw inverter has just blown the power panel. new one costs £450 + transport £150 i am a bit pissed of with studer warranty is strickly 2 years so Ican't help thinking this product is a bit suspect i will tell you more later.

thanks Chris the system I have installed has taken about 3 years to get to were I am now there's still room for development the inverter is an 8kw pure sign wave and it doubles as a 90 amp 48 volt charger, a time clock switches economy 7 on at 12 o'clock midnight to put into the battery bank any shortfall supplied by the pv's, I always start the day with a 90% charged battery bank. I think the change over relays in the inverter are not man enough, so a new power panel is on its way from Switzerland. I shall get that up and running, but to prevent this happening again, my next project is to construct a separate charging system any ideas? i have sent you some pictures please tell me what you think.
