Bit of advice over PV system


Distinguished Member
hi guys nearing completion on a new build.

Just found out i have to have a pv array fitted before sign off!!!

Wrong end of build to find the cash,,,,

Just been quoted £3800 to fit a 3.2kw system next week,

Does this sound reasonable?

This is the spec, totally alien to me anyone know if any good?

With regard to our conversation of this morning, I would confirm that we can fit a 3.36kWp solar panel system for you consisting of the following;

12 All Black JA Solar 280w Mono Panels
1 Trannergy Inverter
Schletter Slate Fixings (see attached)
All associated electrical equipment & cabling
MCS Certification and Feed in Tariff Application
Scaffold platform (I have allowed £250 for this, if you can supply then this can be deducted)

£3895 exc VAT (Assumed zero vat for new build)

Yeah not bad. Prices average around £1k/kw ATM but more for lower end due to fixed cost being higher proportion of price. Can you afford / do you have room for more panels? Higher capacity is always useful because you ever get 100% of output. Have you looked at multi-string systems? They're essential if you have any shading.
