Mr & Mrs Hagan, Burnley

The 20 panel PV array is located on South facing roof at back of property. Mr & Mrs Hagan chose PV Fit due to the quality of the equipment we specified and the comprehensive information provided within our quotation.

Mr & Mrs Hagan are now benefitting from the Governments tax free Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme which is offering them an annual return of 14.09% per year on their capital investment.

Mr Hagan says “The panels seem to be working well!”
