General review of your supplier

Whilst looking for a company to install solar panels on the roof of my house I came across Oxford Solar PV and was impressed by a comment on their web page, saying roughly “we don't send out salesmen to access a new installation but an engineer” and thought “these are the sort of people I want to deal with”. Within a day or so of contacting the company I was visited by Jonny Wilson who immediately set about measuring the roof, so that by the time I had made us a coffee we were able to sit down and discuss the project. After a further short visit to the loft to measure roof angles, orientation, and mounting positions for the inverter and a look in the meter cupboard, Jonny all the information he needed design the system there and then. I had queries about the FIT arrangements and other technical issues which I wanted to understand better and he was able to explain anything I threw at him. So, within an hour he left, later that day produced a full breakdown of installation costs and estimated annual benefits which I received by e-mail the next morning. The installation went like clockwork, two people on the roof fitting the panels and an electrician indoors fitting the equipment, all done extremely neatly and to the highest standards, and in super quick time. By 3.30 pm they were leaving having fitted and commissioned my system, leaving me with the FIT application forms already completed other then my signature in several places. Excellent work, well done Oxford Solar PV ! Highly recommended, exactly what I had hoped for, no waffle just getting on with the job.
