Solar panels for residential home - anyone with experience?

Postby juliantenniscoach » Sat Feb 29, 2020 10:49 am

Hi there,

I live off Northcote Road in one of the traditional houses.  I'm interested in installing solar panels for various reasons including reducing our domestic bills and our carbon footprint.  Does anyone have any experience of doing that, recommendations, pitfalls to avoid etc?

Thanks very much,

Julian

I hope you don't mind me hopping on this thread. But I am planning an extension and exploring solar panels. @schoolsearching may I ask you a few questions as well?

We’ve had 10 350 watt panels on a terraced house installed about 2 years by Treadlighter in Merton Road. We didn’t put in a battery. In July we generated 303kWh, exported 201kWH and paid for 60kWh. It varies a lot through the year but as long as you are willing to change your habits a bit (eg we would never now run a dishwasher overnight) then it makes loads of sense. And the feeling of virtue is overwhelming …. !

Even though my response is a bit belated, I've got some solar panel experience to share! We had them installed last year and it's been a game-changer. Bills are friendlier, and it's awesome for the planet. Biggest tip: find a reputable installer, check reviews, and ask about warranties. When we decided to go solar, we teamed up with the pros at www.acebattery.com. Their solar storage solutions for homes are next-level efficient. I'm seriously stoked about the quality, energy efficiency, and overall performance of their technology. And a great bonus – minimal carbon footprint!

Oh Lord, I don't know what happened there and there is no 'erase last message' on this website.  Here it is again www.treadlighter.co.uk

Hi Julian

Please can you share your learning on here as it sounds as though quite a few of us are interested.

Many thanks!
