Hello.

Sis has just looked at a house with a possible view to purchase. It has just had 30 PV panels fitted along with one battery, and this is used to run the fully electric CH 'wet' system. (This has only been installed for 1 month, so owners have little idea of how effective it is going to be.)

The owner admitted that they were recommended to have a second battery fitted, but turned it down as it would have cost a further £6k.

I'm afraid I have no details of the system other than what I've outlined above, but is it possible to estimate how 'effective' such a system would be in annual use? Ie - what are the chances of it covering, say, half the total energy use? More? Less?! And how much difference would a second battery make? (How much should an additional battery cost?)

It's a detached 3-bed modernised schoolhouse in north Devon.

Many thanks.
