Our thanks go to the sunny weather here in Somerset but especially EcoSkies Ltd - www.ecoskies.co.uk and www.solar-homes.co.uk. Thanks in particular to Steve Andrews who made it completely easy and effortless ably assisted, among others, by Liam Hanley of Solar-Homes.

Soon, I will put up a page to show the performance of the system. As a teaser we are currently getting up to 10 Kw from a 2.4 Kw system and it is only March!
