    Out of interest - how many people do you have on site for installation?

    Tiled roofs we have 2 roofers for 3/4 day and a spark for 2, slate roofs we have 3 roofers for a day and a spark for 2 days.

    Just 2 of us. Me doing electrics for however long it takes and my partner doing roof work for however long it takes. We then both get the panels up and fitted.

    One of our electricians used to be a roofer so only need two Sparks, but we sometime mob the jobs by bringing guys in from our building business.

    3/4 day for everything with 2 people??? Must be a social contract?

    That sounds like us really. If we had someone doing the running and always had 3 roofers we could do it in a day.

    No average system is 4kw, either 16pannels or 22, most cable runs are external, start at 8 on the dot and don't do lunch breaks! Basically work like *+*^! But that's only because we have been doing this for quite a while and 1 a day for the last year or so!

    Well obviously the rest of us must be lazy ;-). I must admit we rarely do external cable runs, but we've been doing this for 18 months now and can count on one had the number we've got done in one day. Mind you we do faff on making sure the customer is happy with the installation all along and we don't use click fit.

    Pan-tile roofs, newish house - 1 day easily.
    Slates/Rosemarys etc. - 2 days.

    Of course, this all depends on deliveries. For whatever reason, moving a pallet of solar panels from a warehouse to our site seems to be an immensely difficult task.

    I picture a scene like one out of Apollo 13 - a room full of baffled and panicked scientists gazing at monitor screens and scratching their heads.
