GREAT PRODUCT, GREAT COMPANY, GREAT PRICE!We were unsure about whether to retro-fit battery storage. The Solar Armour team took the time to answer our queries before we committed to the battery.After we decided to proceed, they immediately scheduled a technical survey and soon after, the installer fitted the system in less than a day.From searches, I had found a few battery storage companies that had very good reviews for their installation and post-installation service. However, there were question marks about the level of after-care from the actual manufacturers of their products.Solar Armour fitted a 5.2 kW battery made by GivEnergy. I had found good reviews of the product and the manufacturer's aftercare.Since installing Solar in 2013, we suffered from serious issues - such as the system not working for 2 years. It had been very painful to get the system up and running again.After that experience, we were determined to go with a company which is HIES-registered - like Solar Armour. The HIES registration is effectively a third-party warranty, which gives us added peace of mind.I would strongly recommend Solar Armour. Their service as installer has been professional. They have always responded to emails, phone calls etc. promptly. Further, they provide an excellent product. The GivEnergy battery has a fantastic app. You can easily see when the battery is charging. It's rewarding to see the mix of energy from solar/battery/the grid etc.And Solar Armour's prices are extremely competitive!

From the first meeting through to to completion evryone has been of the very highest standard. Naturally being somewhat nervous about the unknown and the investment, not the cheapest, but perhaps one of the best in the business if not the best. Early days to see the full impact of savings.Excellent service from all the team. There is absolutely no hesitation in recommending Solar Armour services.

From working with us on the design of the system, through installation and after care including certification with the energy suppliers our experience of working with Solar Armour was exceptional. Lewis and Amy (our main contacts)were always very professional, available at any time to answer any questions we had. The installation itself went without a hitch, panels, battery storage and commissioning all completed in one day. We would strongly recommend Solar Armour if you’re considering a solar system.

I had already looked at 5 other possible suppliers when Solar Armour were recommended to me by a colleague. I was immediately impressed by Lewis who was able to answer all my questions and allay all of my concerns. I was equally impressed by Mark the installer from the first visit to survey the house. I found Solar Armour to be very professional and committed to customer service. Amy kept me updated with e-mails as the installation date approached. There were a couple of small issues during the install but these were dealt with quickly and effectively. My system of 10 panels, inverter and 5.2KWhr battery have been working very well from day 1. I would be happy to recommend them to friends, neighbours and family.

With the price of energy going up and up, I was determined to invest in the latest technology that would give me a reasonable financial payback as well as improving my "green" credentials ! I spoke to many firms but never felt confident enough about entering into a transaction with them.I am really pleased that I found Solar Armour.....After making my initial enquiry for a battery storage solution which would enable to me to purchase and store my electricity from Octopus Energy using a cheap time of use tariff ( as well as charge my electric car), Amy immediately scheduled for Daniel to come out to visit me and discuss my needs the next day. He was professional and inspired confidence, recommending a couple of batteries and an inverter from Givenergy.After agreeing a price and despite this equipment being in short supply, Solar Armour showed up on the nominated day with everything needed for the job.I am very satisfied with the installation of this equipment and I have immediately started saving money on my home electricity. Between Mark and Darryl, they did an excellent job of finding the best cable run to my Consumer Unit, fitting all this equipment very neatly, and then getting everything working. I even had an Emergency Power Supply fitted from the batteries in case of a power cut. Throughout the whole transaction, the owner of Solar Armour, Lewis Westney, acted in an honourable way , and I thoroughly recommend using Solar Armour 😀 It is now nearly nine months since the installation and everything is working well !!

Blown away with the system Solar Armour installed, the minute the panels were switched on, we were getting free electricity. The team was very efficient, heard working and knowledgable, explaining how to get the best out of my shiny new panels. Can't recommend them enough, my only wish is that I'd got them in sooner. Now, every day I look at the sunshine smiling that we're producing free electricity. Thank you Solar Armour!!
