eventually I called them and they said they had the figures and would post them. It was almost as if they were waiting for me to call, to gauge my interest.
Anyhow it was 12k for 2200 watt system. We decided it was a little too pricey for that power and they would be ever so unsightly !.
What we want is the ones that look like red clay tiles - or one or two panels that deliver a couple of kWatts.
Oh dear that doesnt sound great
even more so that they quoted almost 2k over their advertised price
I've asked for the 3.9kw system "if" they can get enough panels on the roof at a "claimed" price of £14.5k ................. we shall see , must admit I had hoped to have something from them this week and we are getting towards the end of it, my fear is to get it in before the dreaded VAT goes up if its the right price
With everyone jumping on the solar bandwagon how long do we realistically think this sell back scheme will last? Farmers turning over fields to it with a guaranteed income sounds like the european market and unsustainable subsidies all over again. I give it five years max whatever it says on the tin
Think the farmers thing is totally different to the home owners version, must admit I do wonder if there so called fixed for 25yrs scheme will last or if in a few years down the line they pull the plug and go back on their word
Having said that you would still have the system, and thus be fairly energy safe, I'm looking at it that even if they pull it after say 5 yrs I'm hoping that I'd be able to recoup enough from it that it will have made it the same price as if I installed it myself ................well thats the plan
