Two years on and Philip Stubley only wants one thing after investing in solar panels from Princeenergy….a bit more sunshine.

But despite the English climate he is still very happy to have made the installation at his home in Sibsey, Lincolnshire and he would not hesitate to recommend both the system and the company to anyone.

“It is difficult to work out what we are saving on our electricity bills, although we are certainly saving money, but last year I know we made £1365 from the feed-in tariff scheme (FITs),” said Mr Stubley.

Under the scheme, energy suppliers have to make regular payments to householders who generate their own electricity from renewable or low carbon sources such as solar panels.

We were very impressed with their level of knowledge and how they demonstrated other systems they had installed , working live on the internet. They also carried out a thorough survey of our property at the same time.

After making a decision to install a solar system to their home, the Stubleys decided to obtain some quotes to see how much it would cost. They researched two companies and invited them round to provide estimates but they found them to be too pushy and unreliable.

Mrs Stubley takes up the story: "Thankfully, I received a recommendation to contact Princeenergy and they attended within days to provide my husband and I with a consultation.

We were very impressed with their level of knowledge and how they demonstrated other systems they had installed , working live on the internet. They also carried out a thorough survey of our property at the same time.

"Within days we received our quotation and we decided to place an order with them. The actual installation was carried out in a very timely manner and the tradesmen and supervisor were very polite too. We are really pleased with the end result and our choice of installer and can only say that we received an excellent service from start to finish."
