TESTIMONIALS
...totally professional and helpful...

We were advised that if we wanted to install solar panels on the 10 northern light roofs, the tiles would have to be replaced with metal sheeting and the glass replaced with a synthetic alternative. This was a big job which would take up to 7 months to complete with the roofing company we have used for many years. We decided to do the roof in 2 stages, stage 1 being the renovation of the first 4 bays on which we could install 5 rows of solar panels which Sol PV completed in 2 days once they had the go ahead. Within a week, we were producing electricity of up to 400 Kwh on a good day. This was beyond our expectations as when the project is complete, we could produce nearly enough power for the daily running of the weaving factory underneath. This is obviously on sunny days and we perfectly understand the ups and downs through the seasons. We expect to be exporting back into the grid and charging for it in the next week or two with only stage one complete. We expect stage two to be completed by September. We would just like to add the Sol PV Group and particularly Brett Reynolds have been totally professional and helpful in this whole project. Initially, we had to shop around for the right contractor for us but are extremely happy with our decision to go with Sol PV Group.”
