    I think the technology has grow up in the last few years, been looking at installing them long before FIT came along. The panels I have installed have a 20yr warranty. Now you could argue the company could be long gone in that time, but that could be applied to just about any item purchased. Time will tell if they make the age they are supposed to or not
    My calculated payback period is 6-7 years

    Solar panels fitted today. Usage dropped by a third and the sun wasn't out. If I could have afforded them outright and done it myself, might have been more lucrative in the long run but seeing savings now on an actual not a probable, for no outlay. If there's a breakeven point of about 7 years for diy fitting, I will have saved £3k in that time and reckon that the point the diy fit overtakes the lease fit is more like 10 years, before factoring in maintenance costs and lowering tariffs for self fit. By that time I'll be dribbling and claiming a fuel allowance. How many know they'll be living where they are now in 10 years time. The warranty doesn't guarantee minimum efficiency so the effect of degradation and useful life is hard to quantify, which won't matter to me as I spent nothing on my system in the first place. Time will tell one way or other, but it ain't a competition, just an opinion Like the idea of solar hot water panels for the remaining roof space.

    50 quid anyone*.

    Hmm, it is a great way to economic electro energy. I think that in the sunny areas it could be very useful.

    Hello guys. Of course, technologies are developing. However, they don't become cheaper and that's very sad. However, 3d rendering for real estate is necessary because it increases rooms sells in hotels a lot. That's the fact, so you can use it to increase your income
