Hi - I got a quote from Power NI for 16 panels (4kWp) - ZHShine Solar Panels, Tranenergy Inverter and I-Boost for £5800

I'm not sure about the quality of the panels however - any anyone used the company before - they changed supplier in recent weeks

Thanks

    anyone at all used this company?
  • I did not use Power NI but three years ago I used Solmatix to install Solar PV panels on my house in Belfast.

    They have been a good investment and I would recommend both PV as a technology and Solmatix as an installation company

    Hope that helps

    Newbie with 2 posts, both for this same company.... hmmm. They must really have done a great job or else you have a vested interest perhaps?
  • Hi Wacko911

    You have a very suspicious mind!!!

    I just want to let you know that I have no vested interest whatsoever in Solmatix

    All I can tell you is that Solmatix did do a really great job for me
    They even replaced some broken roof tiles that I did not know about free of charge!

    As you point out I have indeed only made two comments on MSE
    Your comments would certainly discourage me from making any more comments in future

    I do apologise for annoying you.

    It is your choice whether or not to install a PV system with Solmatix or anyone else
    but my opinion is genuine and I am sorry that you are so cynical

    Best Wishes

    I'm thinking you maybe need to mention Solmatix a few more times in each post so that you can boost your search engine ratings even more.
  • Hello D.A.

    Thanks for your comment

    I had naively thought that the point of this forum was to discuss ways to save money in Northern Ireland. From my own experience I think that installing a PV system is an excellent way to save money on electricity in Northern Ireland.

    I might be missing something but I do not see how your sarcastic comment would help anyone to save anything.

    TBF if some poor soul is having to try to sell solar panels this summer then I'm not going to hound them about some promotional postings - they're gonna need all the help they can get.
  • Hi Belfast Girl,

    Thanks for the friendlier and funny comment!

    I promise you that I am not selling solar panels and despite what some people on here seem to think I have no connection or interest in any solar company apart from being a customer.

    I would plead guilty however to being an advocate of the use of solar PV technology from any supplier as a very effective way to save money on electricity bills in Northern Ireland.
    It does work even in Northern Ireland in a poor summer!!
  • I found the previous powerni contractor to be quite expensive for Chinese panels and inverters which I had never heard of. I got a quote from solmatix but they were a bit expensive, although they seem to know their stuff. I tried a few others and eventually went with Ambergreen. The website has prices for all types of panels and inverters and they let you pay by credit card which I hope should give protection if they went bust? You should get at least 15% off these prices. Panels were fitted in a day and so far so good although I am still waiting on nie setting the meter so I can sell back unused leccy.
    Also remember the ROC payments are to change soon, making it less attractive from the end of October I think. Hope this helps and I have no shares in Ambergreen and will report back if things start to go wrong!
  • That's excellent Bantamfan

    You have certainly enhanced the level of this discussion!

    It is always good to hear of someone else deciding to install
    a PV system. I am sure that it will be a good investment for you
    and it will certainly save you a considerable amount on your electricity
    bills.
