I'm considering getting solar panels on the house.
I've looked into it and would be paying outright rather than be beholden to some rip off company.
The roof orientation is correct.
Has anyone had them installed? Is it worth it? Anything to look out for?

I do believe the electronic bit that converts the solar power to electricity requires replacement every ten years at ten grand ago. Heard that on Radio 4 a while back, may have changed since then?Some days you wake and immediately start to worry. Nothing in particular is wrong, it's just the suspicion that forces are aligning quietly and there will be trouble ahead..... Formally known as Mucus, before I lost the log in....
Well two days of digging and searching in the general area and we still haven't found the cunting leak. Surely there must be technology more accurate than a grumpy old bloke in a yellow hi-vis coat, wielding a length of dowelling on a thread bobbin and claiming there may be a leak in the generic area known as "under there"?

Doesn't make it financially viable if that's the case.

Dinger threads on this before, the subsidy changed and as I recall it's not worth it.Night time is really the best time to work. All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone else is asleep. ~Catherine O'Hara

lifespan is actually 20-40 yrs, google life expectancy, look at the dates posted, as usual newer and long shelf life will improve

Missed the boat on this one I'm afraid, the subsidy got cut massively but then it was way too generous to start with.

Get some really good advice about what a mortgage company is going to think about it.
If someone wanting to buy your house is faced with any difficulty over getting a mortgage on the property on account of you having stuff drilled onto the roof it could cause major problems.
People who've been daft enough to go for the roof leasing nonsense are finding their houses are now completely unsaleable other than to a cash buyer - who woudn't want it anyway.'Where are the Snowdens of yesteryear'?
