Just thought I would let you know nearly 12 mths on that we are very pleased with our result. I targeted providing half our daily consumption of 23Kwh and in fact we are doing just that...around 11-12 Kwh per day consumed direct from the roof.
This has required very little conscious effort on our part but obviously the best value is to be had by holding off on the dishwasher and washing machine until late morning. When you consider the fact that our roof has an undesirable east slope I think our result is damn good and will deliver a payback of around 4-6 years depending on energy price movements.
Installer wanted to come early, which was no problem. Installation was quick, clean and hassle free. We went away after installation but managed to check generation over couple of days and indications are satisfactory even in winter in Melbourne.
Thank you to Bradford and CSR for a reasonably priced product, can highly recommend Bradford and their installer contractors for a job well done.
We decided to purchase our system through Bradford as your representative clearly knew his stuff, and was able to make recommendations to us about the system design and location that caused us to review our initial ideas and come out the end of the process with a system we are very happy with. Bradford solar representatives were patient, friendly and professional, and made themselves available to answer any questions we had about the installation and connection process. Thanks.
Tony and Michael have both been fantastic. The installation has begun, but is ongoing. I'm being kept up to date on progress and the Bradford team are communicating with our builders (it was our builders, RM Homes and DesignBuild, who recommended we use Bradford.) So far so good, looking forward to the completion of our house and the completion of the solar install.
After some shopping around and research I settled on Bradford because of their reputation. I have received the most satisfactory service from all staff. The price was reasonable, and installation quick. I was able to choose the best system for me as all my questions were answered and I was provided with information to help my decision making.
The best thing about the product I had installed (micro-inverter system) is the ability to download my own energy production reports as and when I need, although a monthly report is generated and emailed to me from Enlighten.
Sometimes the download data even includes part of the current day and I can get reports for 5 minute intervals if I want. This function will help me organise my energy use to get the most financial benefit from using solar power. I'm a very happy customer.
The gentlemen that installed the system were very polite and professional. They also were very polite in eating my homemade banana cake! Even though we are still to be completely connected, we are looking forward to their visit again.
