Its got to be poly, we'd be running at a substantial loss at that price - I'd rather watch Jeremy Kyle :90:

Only problem people are blinded by price and do not look into companys until they get stung.

arse. I can't even find fault with the examples on their website, looks like they know what they're doing...

so it appears I was right about the sort of price competition we're going to be facing around here, and not just from chancers.

I wondered about the online monitoring, no structural survey that I can see I suppose that's a bit of a saving if you're willing to take the risk - also think it's maybe not such a good idea to have the link :)

It can be achieved, but depends on size of business and overheads. I have priced it using a well known supplier and it works, beats rewires. But its tight. no room for error or new mains

I suspect it's still the 21p rate, which tbf we've still got on our website, though I'm about to sort that out.

We're NAPIT also and structural survey is a requirement if they're not doing them they'll have to from next inspection if they're still going.

I object to the term 'experts' being used so often in marketing. This is an alarm company as far as i can tell, what makes them PV experts?

Have none of you got anything else better to do? It's my website, it's my company. I have posted the odd time on here myself so it's no secret. The price and product model works well for us and is good value for customers.

We do complete structual surveys on all work, include an EPC, we do include a 10 yr insurance backed warranty and on the online monitoring is via OWL Intuition. As of today we are updating our site so yes some references may still exist to the 21p rate but on the whole we are making good progress in updating this.

Any more questions? (probably regret asking that lol)

Maybe you could share your secret to pricing - I'm clearly doing something wrong cos I can't get anywhere near those prices and like everyone else on here I'd like to be able to get near that for our customers .....

In a recession
and maybe setting up an airline can only be done by Pilots
Well there is a window company in Birmingham doing solar that's the reasoning for my comments
They made it too easy for other firms to get involved who say they are experts when they are not and they don't understand it all they understand is there profit margines

I do - but it's a long winter ahead and I want to be around for my customers if anything goes wrong. I guess it's the same old argument of working solely in pv or having it as a bolt on to an existing business with shared overheads. I just couldn't make any money at those prices so I might as well flip burgers at Mcdonalds with a lot less hassle.

This is based on 3 fitters over one day. Most jobs we complete in a day with three installers, otherwise it's 2 installers over a day and a half. SRE i'll pm you the type of costs we are working on, it would be interesting how you compare it with what your working with.

About 85% of our business is PV. The remainder is our usual electrical contracting which has worked well as when solar has gone quiet in the past we have been able to catch up on all the commercial electrical work that generally builds up. I'm not sure how purely PV companies have managed to cope with the ups and downs over the last year I would expect that traditional electrical businesses that started doing PV would have been better placed than many.
