    Thought I'd get the ball rolling in this sub forum :)

    Currently looking at Solar packages for both my properties, had a few companies come out and quote prior to the government seemingly pulling incentives/funding for this industry.

    Has anybody in the UK had installations carried out in the last 6 months?

    Thanks

    Sai

    Hi

    Friend of mine just before government changed incentives installed 8 solar panels on his house by Apple improvement. What you need to know? I can ask him, my plans was to do the same but after cutting funding this year and still expensive panels or installation is not worth right now I think.

    This is somewhat at the fringe of this topic yet key enough to reported in geographically-centric thread! Does not indicate the likely rise of the total solar share. Will tweet him back 2 ask.

    Also see a related earlier tweet

    Anyways, well done, :greatbritain:UK:greatbritain:!!

    Apparently, Dr. Evans indicated solar was up to 3% in 2016, presumably up from a negligible share 5 years ago.

    I had 20 panels installed back in August from a small local company in Colchester, Essex. 5.4kWh peak but... I had them installed, 10 east and 10 west, a good decision by them as I get a longer period of power spread throughout the day. About 3.5kWh which is enough to run the house, washing machine, dish washer, heat the water (through a power divertor) and charge the Model S at about 6mph.
