What Our Customers Say

Sometimes things are better said in peoples own words. Below is a letter we received from Bill and Josee four months after their solar electricity system was installed.

Dear Anna,

Had a nice weekend? Lovely here, frosty in the mornings, glorious sun for the rest of the day.

Anna, we waited a few months so we could give you an up-to-date update :-)

First of all we wish to thank you for the excellent service and quick follow up, whenever required. We are very pleased with the panels, your service and what we are achieving, savings-wise.

We have been making comparisons to our bills last year and we can now give you some results. If you want to use this information in your advertising, that's ok with us.

Not bad is it? (Understatement of the year!)

All the readings are accurate. Meridian does not read the meter every month, so I rang the readings through.

All the figures are after the Prompt Payment discount has been taken off.

Also, in all fairness, we are more aware of our electricity use, like I won't turn the dryer on until the sun comes out to light up our panels, whereas before any time would do. But the fact that, even with the dryer going regularly, we can still save this kind of money, me thinks that's bloody good going.

Yes, it is a big outlay, but it saves us hugely on our monthly outgoings, with savings like this it won't take THAT long to recoup your money, AND, if selling the property it adds value to the house, especially if you can prove what savings it makes.

Overall, a big THANK YOU!
