Sophie Hunt was no stranger to the idea of using solar panels to generate her own energy and reduce her energy bills. Despite having defective solar film panels on her previous property (provided by a company that subsequently went bust), Sophie wasn’t deterred from finding an effective renewable energy solution for her home.

During an online search for local solar panel installation firms she discovered three companies, one of which was Forever Green Energy. Keen to get several quotes, Sophie endured one company’s full-on approach with elaborate presentations delivered via laptop and a distinct no-show from the other firm.

The decision to choose Cheltenham-based Forever Green Energy was simple according to Sophie, “It was the Forever Green Energy rep, Adrian, who swung it for me. He was relaxed and presented the information in a straightforward way.”

In fact she found the whole process painless, from completing the necessary paperwork to the prompt installation of solar panels on both the front and back of her house. “Forever Green Energy was very efficient and even helped me complete the forms. Adrian was always contactable when I needed help and advice and to answer any questions throughout the process.

I thought the installation would take ages, but it was only two to three weeks once the order was put in. The technicians were very good too and even hoovered up.”

Five months on and Sophie is already enjoying the benefits of her solar panels whilst making great savings. “My house is a lot warmer and I’ve reduced my electricity usage from 4kw a day to 2.5kw. I’ve already had a payment of £300 for my generated and exported energy through the Feed-In Tariff.”

Not only will she benefit from lower energy bills going forward, but she’ll also benefit from an additional income by selling the excess energy generated by her solar panels back to the national grid.

Sophie also loves the fact that the equipment is reliable and easy to use. She keeps track of her daily and weekly usage, plus her generated energy, online and via a display wired into the solar panel system.

For Sophie, choosing solar panels was the best solution to help combat rising energy prices, “I would definitely recommend solar panel installation. It’s been everything Forever Green Energy promised it would be. So far it’s a win-win situation.”
