This was found on one of our inspections underlying the urgency for a property to have an electrical MOT:
SJD Electrical Services are proud to announce their new commercial client Gemini Communications Ltd.
We have recently started an Electrical installation through Gemini for the new showroom of Briggs Automotive Company known as BAC Mono in Liverpool. BAC is the British manufacturers of the world first road-legal, single seater production car called Mono. The mono reaches 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 170mph, the car has regular reviews with Top Gear, they quote themselves as being confirmed Monomaniancs!

New installation of Rointe Electrical Radiators, 4kw Solar PV System, New Electric Water Tank and Consumer Unit Change
We reduced the hot water tank by 150 litres and wired through an electronic timer element to ensure the element comes on when the solar panels are at their peak. We also wired in a low energy heat pad that ticks over on 134watts to keep the heat in the tank for longer.
The biggest misconception is that Solar is no longer a worthwhile investment due to the Feed In Tariff reduction, how wrong could they be? See the figures in the below table. The return on investment is virtually identical the only major difference is that the customer no longer needs to spend £12k-£15k.
|Energy Generated (kwh)||3568 kwh||3568 kwh|
|Feed In Tariff Rate (FIT)||43.3p||14.9p|
|Income from FIT||£1544.94||£550.90|
|Export Tariff Rate||3.1p||4.64p|
|Value of Export Energy||£55.30||£83.78|
|Electricity Purchase Price (Average)||12p||13p|
|Total System Worth||£1814.32||£873.74|
|System Price (Average)||£12-£15k||£6-8K|
|Return on Investment||12-15%||11-14.5%|
Above figures are based on a 4kW south facing system
