Solar quote is thus any good?

Hi I have been shopping for a solar installation with battery. This is the best I have had but its a big investment at 17k is it fair or should I keep shopping. Picture attached of all installation details.installation in march due to wait times..would be greatful of any input.

    No expert in saying whether it's fair or not, but by way of comparison I got
    20 400kw sharp panels
    8Kw sunsynk inverter
    10 Kw Sunsynk battery
    Tigo optimisers and gateway
    DNO fee
    plus full install
    £16k
    "All lies and jest, still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest"

    8kWh Canadian Solar Panels, 8.5kWh Hybrid Sunsynk inverter, 10kWh Sunsynk battery

    Hope you won't mind my saying that quote looks expensive, especially when considering the budget brands on offer.

    Here's a quote I've just seen a week ago:

    26 X 400W All Black SHARP Panels
    26 X SolarEdge Optimizers
      1 X SolarEdge Inverter

    25 year warranty on everything. ~£11K installed. Scaffolding/ bird netting are typically extra. I'd suggest always going with quality panel and inverter brands over budget options. 

    Are you certain you need a battery? If you haven't used this calculator, I'd recommend doing so before adding another £4K to the above total. 
    -  10 x 400w LG BiFacial Panels + SE P505 Optimizers + SE 3680 HD Wave Inverter. SE London (Zone 2). 
    -  40% of panels in an East/ West rooftop orientation.
    -  Viessmann 200-W on Advanced Weather Comp. (the most efficient gas boiler sold)
