    Have solar panel quote, need advice 11th Oct 18 at 6:15 PM
    I had Project Solar visit me this week and give me a quote:


    Core components 14 x Evolution Max Life solar panels Included
    8 x Tigo Optimized Included
    1 x Growatt Twin Tracker inverter Included
    Voltage optimiser Included
    K2 mounting kit Included
    inc. access equipment (if required) Included
    Installation Fully installed Included
    Fully registered Included
    10 year workmanship warranty Included
    Lifetime limited warranty on the Growatt Twin Tracker inverter Included
    HIES warranty Included
    Lifetime performance and build warranty on the module Included
    Anti-theft device Included
    48 hour repair response with dedicated customer care Included
    Total cost of goods 7948.00
    Total cost of labour 1987.00
    Net total 9935
    VAT @ 5% 496.75
    Gross total 10431.75


    Their projections are 548 savings in the first year (savings, selling and tariff) with 14 years for it to pay for itself.


    I've told them I'm thinking about cancelling and they called me. They offered a free upgrade to Sunpower 333w panels if I go ahead. Is this really a good panel?



    Any advice? Does this seem reasonable? The stuff I've found online so far generally seems to say they offer a good service,but overquote.

    Hi David and welcome!
    As a first off the quote is about double what can be achieved although it doesn't mean you should necessarily write the company off. But do obtain two or three other quotes to compare against. I don't know quite what and anti theft device might be as I've not yet heard of anyone having had a system stolen and it would take a few hours to dismantle one anyway.

    I had a system installed earlier in the year and the guys on the forum were most helpful to me. It would be worth you following the link to the thread below which plainly shows the help received so it will all be there for you with out everyone having to repeat the knowledge so kindly passed on to me.
    Should you have any questions arising as a result then I'm sure the guys on here will be only too pleased to help.
