The PV array is located on a Southerly pitched roof, surrounding a solar thermal system which was installed at the same time. The equipment took only 2 days to install and commission, allowing them to start claiming their FIT payments from their energy provider straight away.

Mr Moore says: “I am very happy with the service PV Fit provided.”
