Having the system installed was not fun. To choose an installer I did a lot of research, and used a website called “YouGen” that reviews and rates renewable energy system installers. For all the good this did us, I would probably have been better off making a list and sticking a pin in it, because the company we chose turned out to be a right bunch of lemons. They were supremely disorganised, and broke a fair few promises. We were cheerfully told the installation would take two days; it actually took three weeks! Although I’m pleased to say that in the end everything was done to our satisfaction, getting the installers to achieve this felt like herding cats, and caused me and Phil a lot of unnecessary stress.
