Comment from Member
Here’s a comment from one of our members in August 2021:-
Just for your records, Leeds Solar installed 7 solar panels on our roof this week.
The whole process from quotation to installation was relatively straightforward, and the installation team – and everyone we’ve had contact with at Leeds Solar – were very friendly and helpful.
email Leeds-Solar to let them know you would like a quote using the address email@example.com . Mention that you are a member of Climate Action Ilkley or Addingham Environment Group. Include your name and address and the timescales you are thinking about and if you know it your annual electricity consumption either in kWh or £. Say whether you have a combi boiler or hot water tank system. If the latter they can quote for an iBoost system which provides water from the solar panels. Please copy us via firstname.lastname@example.org so we can keep track of who is taking part.
Leeds-Solar will give an outline quote. They can do this by viewing your house via Google Earth. This enables them to see the orientation of your house and how big your roof is. This isn’t a firm quote, it is subject to an on-site survey.
If you are happy with the online quote they will arrange a time to visit your property for a physical survey. They aim to survey up to six properties on a single day so try to be flexible with the date. They won’t need to go on to your roof but they may need to access your internal roof space. They will discuss with you the best place for the inverter box and battery if you are having one.
If you decide to go ahead with their firm quote they will arrange a convenient date with you. An installation is usually completed in a single day but if unexpected issues arise may go over to a second day.
Leeds Solar have a set of Covid-19 staff precautions for working together and in your home. They will be happy to send you a copy if you wish.
