Found that the company was very easy to deal with right from the start. The representative who first visited did a thorough job of listening to my requirements and evaluating my property for the installation. We did have some further conversations to finalise the panel and inverter units to be used and the price, as well as answering questions I raised. At all times my queries were dealt with professionally. The other staff I met and the installers were very professional, courteous and careful, completing the whole installation of 16 panels in one day. We are up and running generating electricity and saving and making money now.

Very good knowledge and prepared to install a fairly complex 3 array system. Installers are employees not contractors and the handover pack is exemplary. Very hard to find fault in any part of the process.

Having decided that I would " do renewables ", A Shade Greener's offer to put 16 solar panels on the roof of a cottage partially built in 1652 facing the road was rejected and they did not do any other installation, the water authority proved awkward over an extraction licence for a water turbine and the wind speed average was just under the minimum needed to justify a wind turbine. Air source and ground source heat pumps fell over because the cottage couldn't get a D rating on the EPC. Then along came Spirit Solar, Yes we can do free standing solar panels but you will need planning for over 9sq.Ms. especially in an AONB so put them on the roof of your swimming pool where no planning is needed. The site visit highlighted the previous owners insistence on cheap builders / electrical work but again Spirit Solar stepped in : we can sort out the earthing problem and replace that non armoured cable. Next as expected the cottage failed miserably on the EPC rating even with proposed new double glazed windows and the solar panels, not a problem said Spirit Solar we will get an exemption for the swimming pool enclosure and you can get your feed in tariff. Throughout the whole exercise nothing was too much trouble the work was carried out as promised including some Saturday working, the workmanship is splendid and the solar panels are belting out the Kilowatts even my sceptical builder was impressed enough to ask for a card because he thinks it would be a good idea for his " Gaff " The can do attitude was a breath of fresh air compared to the more usual negative response to anything slightly difficult or unusual.

We approached Spirit Solar having researched them on the internet and being satisfied about their reputation for installing PV systems. A salesman called and provided information with no pressure to buy. We had follow up questions that he answered quickly by email. We found it useful to have quotes from competitors who may have been more knowledgeable; in talking to them, we had more confidence to ask questions about what Spirit Solar was proposing. Once we agreed to go ahead, the work was carried out very quickly with no inconvenience and no problems.

Spirit Solar work hard as a team to ensure that the installation is of high quality and the customer has all the information required to make the right choice. I took the time to consider a lot of different options and spirit solar always willingly provided me with new quotations. I don't think they are the cheapest out there, but I considered that having the confidence in the company to provide a quality service was more important than finding a slightly cheaper supplier. The price was still very competitive. When my roof turned out to be more difficult, the team were swift to bring in another team to ensure that the job did not get overly delayed. Well done to the team at Spirit.

Spirit Solar provided a highly effective service throughout - from a prompt response to my initial enquiry through to completion of the project. From the start they were very responsive with quotations and revisions invariably turned round within 24 hours. The advice provided was sound, clear and helpful. At the initial site visit the technician was able to explain all of the technical requirements and we were able to work with him to design a very tidy system design. The actual installation was completed with very little disruption and comfortably within a day. All discussions were followed up promptly both in email and written formats. Overall the service was excellent - this was probably the best experience I have had in working with a service provider - I am very happy to recommend Spirit Solar to anyone considering a PV solar system

Spirit Solar provided an excellent service throughout, from my initial inquiry through to completion of the installation. They helped me select the most appropriate system for my situation and kept me well informed throughout the project. Everyone I dealt with was very knowledgeable, courteous and not at all pushy. The install was completed in a day to a high standard, despite some challenging weather conditions. I would be very happy to recommend Spirit Solar to anyone thinking of purchasing a PV solar system.

A very professional service from start to finish with great communication between all the staff involved. Always willing to answer any queries and after having had 3 other quotes from other companies they were the only one I contacted who provided a full comprehensive service.
