Introduction

These solar panels were installed on a modern detached house in Croydon in March 2014.  A lovely south facing roof provided a perfect site for  this system comprising 16 high efficiency Panasonic 240W panels, together with a Solar Edge inverter system. The client was keen to minimise any internal disruption and this was achieved by installing the inverter in the loft with all cabling run externally.

Quick Efficient Installation

The system was installed quickly and efficiently in just 2 days and a short video of the installation can be viewed to the right.

Quality Products

For this client, high quality components were a priority and therefore we selected high efficiency Panasonic panels and the Solaredge inverter system. Sogosolar is an accredited Solaredge Advanced Installer and a Panasonic Premium Installer. Click here for more on Panasonic solar panels.

Testimonial

“We spoke to quite a few solar companies but were not convinced by any of the sales pitches. Ben was the last one to come in and his pitch was technical and professional. He knew all the answers and sounded like someone who knew the job very well.
We went ahead with SogoSolar and have not regretted the decision. Ben installed the panels himself and the work was carried out to top standards. Our electricity bill has gone down and we are also getting quarterly returns from the electricity provider.
Ben has been in touch with regular newsletters about what has been happening in the solar industry, which is very useful to know. We had many queries when we were thinking of moving house and Ben’s responses were always prompt and informative.
We would not hesitate to recommend Ben and his team.”
