    What's wrong with that? Just bill the customer again when you get called out again!

    We don`t have ANY bad installs but are starting a shadow company called Renewable-Rescue as so many people have appalling installations , with cheap POLY Chinese rubbish that we think there is a massive market over the next few years to put these right. Especially when the train jumpers sod off back to selling conservatorys, mobile phones and skateboards.

    I love my double glazing and the salesman gave me a good discount. I dont think there are many bad installs out there.

    Err maybe Enecsys micro-inverters under panels?

    Although cant see why they dont have more panels on the big roof you can see.

    Have you seen the inverter?

    Although unlikely you never know,

    Panels are straight though LOL

    I got two down our way which have been installed directly behind the chimney and get permanent shading on 2 or 3 panels all day! what I couldn't understand was one house had 6e 6w where it could have just had 12 on the east roof with zero shading. I keep on meaning to knock on the door and ask who did it......... I am sure it is sometimes down to customer preference but I feel sorry if these guys were poorly advised.

    This has to be the dodgiest install I've ever seen. I don't even think MCS Renewables could sort this out unless they went up there with a JCB and knocked the house next door down.
