Living out in the country with no gas supply unlike most city dwellers we have to use oil to provider our heating and hot water. This is not very green and not exactly cheap.
To improve matters we have been looking installing solar panels on the roof. Its quite a minefield and there is a lot to consider.
Do you go with a central inverter or micro inverters. DC-DC optimisers or a simple string installation. Also if your property is old is there other things you can do to improve it that are more cost affective. If your after the UK governments feed in tariff you can only get the top value if your property achieves a EPC rating of at least D.
So lots of research and i’ll be contracting three local companies for quotes.
