Solar PV Installation in Chorley (2.775kW)

In March 2011, PV Fit installed a 2.775kWp solar PV system for Mr & Mrs Hayes in Chorley, Lancashire.



The 15 panel PV array is located on West facing roof at rear of property. Mr & Mrs Hayes chose PV Fit on recommendation from a work colleague, with installation taking place less than a month from their initial enquiry.

Mr & Mrs Hayes are now benefitting from the Governments tax free Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme which is offering them an annual return of 9.82% per year on their capital investment.

Mr Hayes says “All appears well. Great game keep checking the meter to see how far it has gone up! Once again, thanks for a great job.”
