General review of your supplier

As an environmentally-aware family we were already buying our electricity from a supplier specialising in 100% renewable electricity, so the next step was to see if we could produce our own. One big question was how much electricity we could actually produce as we didn’t want to go through all the trouble and money to produce just a token amount of energy! We learnt about AGMS through word of mouth. The initial survey was done very professionally: all the details were clearly explained and a quick estimate showed we would be able to produce more electricity than we use annually and repay our investment in less than 10 years. AGMS took care of all issues related to the installation, which was completed on time and efficiently and with minimum disruption to our daily life. We are very impressed with their professional behaviour, the attention to details and the ability to clearly communicate all the facts, options and solutions at every step along the way, from survey to final commissioning and hand-over. Our solar PV system looks very neat and has been supplying our household with renewable electricity for just over a week; the additional installation of a “smart device”, as suggested by the AGMS team, has allowed us to monitor our energy production and usage, as well as the amount we export to the grid. Since the PV installation was completed we have started to put our dishwasher on in the morning, rather than before going to bed, and set our washing machine with a time delay so it runs during the day rather than late afternoon. This makes best use of our solar energy, which not only saves us money but makes us happy to be exporting rather than consuming energy. We were surprised that even with a little light in the early evening we are still exporting some electricity back to the grid. Overall we are very pleased with the service AGMS has provided and with our PV system and would definitely recommend them. Great job and 3 very happy customers, well done!
