    I've had a couple of phone calls so far from companies touting; "Solar Panel Enhancement". I'm guessing that this could possibly involve something as simple as:-
    a) Cleaning the panels.
    b) Ripping out the inverter and replacing with micro inverters.
    c) Using the foot in the door to flog battery storage.
    or maybe all three or something else?

    Has anyone else been approached with this type of sales approach?

    P.S. They may be trying to sell Voltage Optimisers??
    You could always ask them to be precise about what they mean - if they will tell you without requiring a salesman to call

    Had one call it was about making claim about mis-selling of solar PV when you rent your roof out but it did not apply to us anyway. I do not respond at all to cold calling at all if it something I might be interested in, which would be very rare I would do some research 1st. I am very wary of calls to my land line they are always more often than not, scam calls. Had one this morning from "Amazon"
    As PIH suggest ask them to be precise.

    Don't worry guys, I'm too old a hand to be taken in by pressure selling.
    As you say Peter, they get around the actual detail bit by employing ultra nice jovial telesales staff, who know nothing, and only take the appointment bookings for the expert to explain on his visit.
    I'm just curious to know what the pitch is. The more I think about it, I'm guessing it's voltage optimisers. They'd be a quick fit between the CU and incoming mains, easy- peasy, - job done, with the option, special offer of the day, of course, of another relatively easy fit, addition of a battery storage system.
    Doing the micro inverter replacement thing would be much more onerous, so I'm guessing that's not on the cards.
    Im imagining its b or c
