The Energy Group would like contact people who have experience with PV in order to compile some case studies and advice for others who are considering having it installed. We are interested both in people who have had it done recently and therefore have up-to-date experience with suppliers, and in those who have had it done a few years ago so that they can tell us what yields they have achieved and if there were any maintenance problems. If you can help, please contact the energy group
Hope to see you soon!
