It was the opportunity of a sound investment and the green aspect of renewable energy that appealed to Eric Baker and his wife when they considered solar panels for their home.

After doing their homework, the couple met with several solar panel installation companies to discuss their requirements and obtain quotes. But it was the professional service offered by Cheltenham-based Forever Green Energy that sealed the deal.

“We had 4/5 companies come, but it was the Forever Green Energy salesman who did it for us. He was knowledgeable and knew what he was talking about. He presented the information in such a way that we were able to clearly understand what options were available to us.”

“He was the only one out of all the companies that called us back to see if we’d come to a decision or needed more information. He was a really professional salesman.”

Eric and his wife had 15 solar panels installed on the roof of their home and were equally pleased with the installation team too, “The team was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and polite. A nice bunch of guys.”

That was 11 months ago and the couple have already made huge savings on their energy bills. “We’ve generated more than forecast and will be almost energy-neutral this year.”

Eric says that since the solar panel installation they save money in several ways. Via the Feed-In Tariff for the electricity generated, through what they use for their own consumption (60% of what they produce) and through a piece of kit that diverts energy to heat their hot water.

The couple are able to monitor the performance of their solar panels and their energy consumption via a monitor and online, which is particularly useful when they’re away on holiday. This enables them to see how much energy they’re generating and using, as well as how much money they’re saving by feeding in the tariffs. “It shows what you’re generating, what’s been generated today, yesterday, last week etc.”

Eric believes solar panels are a “good investment” and that “Forever Green Energy are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.” And that’s exactly what he did, “I recommended Forever Green Energy to my neighbour and he’s already placed an order.”
