A good investment with a great return and an effective way to reduce his energy bills were the main selling points for Christopher Pether when he considered installing solar panels on his property.

Following the recommended advice, Christopher obtained quotes from several renewable energy companies before deciding on Cheltenham-based Forever Green Energy.

“Forever Green Energy’s was the most reasonable quote of the three companies.”

However, before the solar panel installation could begin, he needed an Energy Performance Certificate and to check whether he needed planning permission. Fortunately for Christopher, “Forever Green Energy did all of that” as part of their solar panel installation service.

Christopher was equally pleased with the installation process which saw 16 solar panels fitted to the roof of his house. “They were prompt and the installation was straightforward and easy as I have a long, sloping roof.”

Almost two years on and Christopher is very pleased with Forever Green Energy’s ongoing service. “Every year on the anniversary of the installation they contact me to check the performance of the solar panels and take a meter reading. And when a faulty inverter was detected, it was replaced by the manufacturer.”

Utilising solar panels to generate renewable energy and reduce his electricity bill was a big pull for Christopher. Through the Feed-In Tariff, he’s paid for the energy he generates as well as the excess he sells back to the national grid.

“When I bought the solar panels I knew it would take a few years to recoup the investment. I’ve saved more than estimated. I’m very pleased with the product and very pleased with the return of investment.”

For anyone considering solar panels as an investment opportunity and a way of reducing their energy bills, Christopher says, “If you’ve got the money and can spare it, it’s a good investment.”
