Good morning all,
Hope everyone is okay in this windy weather.
I've got solar panels, Dove, but I was lucky enough to have them fitted free when it made it worth while for firms to fit them when the feed-in tariffs were a lot higher. They are on the back of the house where they are not too obvious but they look ugly if they are overlooked. I had an old electricy meter until the electric company changed it and it turned backwards when I didn't use all the electricy generated but unfortunately the new meter doesn't do that. The company does any maintenance as another thing to be aware of is the inverter which converts the direct current coming in to alternating current can fail and this can be expensive.
I'm happy with mine as I live in Cornwall and they were fitted free but I am not sure that it would be worth paying for them.
