    Having failed to get planning permission for a wind turbine I have decided to turn my attention to Solar PV.
    There seem to be so many installers though, can anyone recommend some long etablished ones or very good ones they have heard of/ dealt with? (Preferably in the Cheshire, Merseyside area)

    I've repeatedly used Evo Energy which is in your general neck of the woods.


    My system (described in another thread) was from Ethical Solar. I've been very pleased with them. http://www.ethicalsolar.org/

    bit south of you in Wales but well recommended.
    or you can search our database - we invite people to feedback on their installer, so that others can make a more informed decision. They have to score them against five criteria, and can add extra comments. http://www.yougen.co.uk/search/ and if you do find one, please go back and rate them afterwards.

    Anyone you can recommend that covers Kent - long established or very good? I've had a look at yougen but there are too many - most with very few recommendations. Ethical Solar don't appear to cover Kent, according to their website.
    My other thought is, given the busy-ness of installers right now, the lack of available materials until the rush is over on 12 December, and given we need to submit our new build VAT application by the end of January, is it worth buying all the materials from Germany, and finding an MCS installer who can fit in early January?
    Many thanks

    Caspen - probably!
    I've spoken to a few PV installers who's work has almost completely evaporated after the 12th. There must be MCS installers who would do an install only rather than not work. Make sure all the bits from Germany are MCS compliant.

    sorry to hear that you can't get permission for a turbine. Can't trust the Planners; when I applied for a turbine they tried to get me to do PV instead as they "preferred the less intrusive technology". I got permission for a turbine anyway, now they tell my neighbours that PV is too intrusive. I weep for the children of tomorrow!:cry:
    Suppliers are restocking well after the initial panic rush buying , probably be plenty of kit about in a week or 2
