Newest happenings

This week our solar panels have finally been installed.
After 4 quotes last October we agreed to go with the "local guy" ( does 70+ km class as local?)last November and the application went in to the power company.  Mum  applied in December and got approval in early January and we still hadn't heard. At the end of January we found out we too had approval.   Mum's panels are due to be installed next week so we were getting quite frustrated waiting to hear when ours would go up but finally on Monday we got a call from "our man".  He was to appear on Wednesday or Thursday to install the panels and return with his electrician on Friday to install the invertor.?  Inverter?  Hmm one of those.

 Anyway panels went in Wednesday and today the inverter.    Very pleased. On Wednesday while at work I happened to mention to someone else that we had chosen someone local to do ours and it turned out they'd gone with the same person. They were very happy.   The person I spoke said, " He really needs someone to do his paperwork." it's shocking.    Well today just proved that point more. We haven't paid a thing.  Our system is fully installed and saving us power even though as yet we haven't applied to the power board for them to buy back from us.    He is going to send us an invoice for payment and then once we get paid for our recs wants us to pay them on to him.  hmmm

  He is happy to wait???!!?!!  Hubby had to almost chase him down our driveway to get that much info from him.
