General review of your supplier

I can't recommend "The Solar Electrician" highly enough. I didn't know a lot about Solar PV but John explained in detail why each piece of kit was required and the benefit in going for that particular make/model. We plumped for 14 x LG Neon 2 V5 340w panels, Solaredge HD Wave inverter, and a Myenergi Eddi immersion controller. The system took 2 days to install during very wet and windy conditions. I am glad that we did go for the SolarEdge inverter as we can see how each of the panels are performing during the day and how shading affects the output.The Myenergi Eddi immersion controller is an absolute revelation - any excess solar power is used to heat the hot water tank during the day instead of exporting it. I can also do timed boosts at the start and end of the day just like my old immersion controller. I can see already that the Eddi unit is making a considerable saving.My only regret is that I didn't have a larger roof to put more panels on. It may only be March with mainly cloudy and wet days but I am really happy with the output level that I am getting and can't wait for summer.The next step for me will be battery storage and I shall hold tight until I get some useful stats out of the Solaredge unit - in the mean time battery prices should drop.
