Discuss PV Supply in the Solar PV Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net
Well with all these deadlines because of the FIT, there is no stability, flat out then nothing, the flat out..Is the PV supply Iindustry that weak that installers have to take it opon themselves to finance the supply of their own products?
In the December rush we ended up having to source some panels from other places than our usual supplier , we got them from city's who we already dealt with on the day to day contracting side .Their are suppliers that are willing to give credit, they are electrical wholesalers, if PV installers used them then they would keep stock in depth, the thing that stops them is the solar industry is seen as new and un-established, and the stock holding is a lot more than a few drums of cable.
Fair play to them, all done when every PV supplier wanted payment up front.In the December rush we ended up having to source some panels from other places than our usual supplier , we got them from city's who we already dealt with on the day to day contracting side .
Not only did they pull it out of the bag and deliver all that was ordered on time but they also upped our credit limit by over £150,000 to do so with no questions asked !
