Testimonials of previous solar installations
"After having two extortionate quotes from two salesmen we then found GHE Solar who are only about three miles away, what a difference. Howards first visit was very thorough, he measured the roof, inspected the loft, garage, location of meter and fuse board. He then explained that we could have the inverter in the loft or the garage and how the two alternatives would be installed. The system we have chosen is 3.92kWp with the inverter in the garage, we also have a remote control unit in the lounge. This installation has cost us less than the two "salesmen" quoted for their 2kW systems. If anyone would like to see a really first class solar PV installation then contact GHE Solar and they will pass on our details.

“GHE solar were recommended by a friend and gave us excellent advice surrounding the prospective installation of solar water heating and photo-voltaic electricity generation, and the installation itself was completed on time and with no hassles. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.”
D Bailey (Director of the Greenham Common Trust) - Newbury, Berkshire
"I would like to thank Howard and Ryan Davis and the GHE Solar team for your expert service with respect to the supply and installation of a 3.7kW PV solar energy system on my property in Woodley. The way that you progressed the project from initial enquiry and site survey to the installation and your help with completion and submission of the feed-in tariff claim form etc was excellent and at a very competitive price. It is a pleasure to do business with a company that is so thorough and meticulous in their work. You score top marks with me as you are true professionals of the highest calibre! and that is from the MD of a service company that takes pride in giving good service to my own customers... Its great to watch the money rolling in as the sun shines and I wish GHE Solar all the best in the future I will certainly recommend your company to my friends and relatives. Best regards, Nick Goldring. www.amourelle.co.uk (Garage Door Automation specialist) Prospective GHE Solar clients are welcome to contact me direct on Nick@amourelle.co.uk for verification of the testimonial and to view the PV solar energy system on my property in Woodley".

"After a number of companies came to my house and offeredtheir advice as to which PV panels I should fit and where, Howard stood out as being well informed and answered all of my queries promptly. There were some issues that arose during the installation and Howard personally dealt with on the day, which made the process ultimately successful".
Mr and Mrs Buckley, Abingdon, Oxfordshire
"I was very impressed by the straightforward and professional way that GHE Solar approached my 4kW PV installation. The quotation was issued very promptly and the installation proceeded rapidly after the DNO approval was recieved. GHE handled all the paperwork. GHE organisation was impressive with the team arriving when they said they would and completed the job when they said they would. GHE exceeded my expectations and the installation's performance is continuing to exceed my expectations."
Mr Callaghan Midgham, Berkshire
“GHE Solar installed a 9.87kWp array on our farm barn. Howard and Ryan's advice was by far the best of all we contacted. The system generates half for our domestic use and a half for the farm. The installation went well and Howard and Ryan were always around when anything needed explaining. All the staff were friendly and courteous. We are now looking to expand the system due to its high performance. We strongly recommend GHE Solar for their high quality advice and workmanship ”
George and Lesley Chandler, Wantage, Oxfordshire
““I Knew how well solar hot water systems worked as my father has one, but it was really the price that did it for me. Finally there is a company offering solar systems at a realistic price.”
T Collins – Barnet, London
“Solar water system was installed in full. When we had decided to have the installation done, they were very efficient and gave us full knowledge of the system once it was installed. A minor problem with a connection after installation was dealt with overnight and they couldn't have been more helpful.”
M Clark - Thatcham, Berkshire
"Solar energy seems obvious but such a mystery? I found GHE Solar not only confirmed some of what I thought, but provided much needed clear information and advice. The installation came and went with limited fuss and now I have lashings of hot water that has cost me nothing to produce. I feel so much better about doing something 'green' and save on energy bills as a result. In only a couple of months, and with the added incentive of grant support, I can see I will recoup the capital expense in no time at all."
R Castle - Highclere, Hampshire
“Good technical knowledge and very easy to talk to and get on with. No hard 'double glazing' selling - just the truth!! A trouble free installation.”
Mr and Mrs Lawrence, Reading, Berkshire
“Super efficient service and installation and attention to detail. They answered all my questions, and supplied lots of additional helpful information.”
Mr Collis, Reading, Berkshire
“GHE under Howard did excellent work, the installation was very speedy and tidy, and all the workers were very friendly and professional. We would not hesitate to recommend GHE Solar. All details were given by GHE, so nothing was left out or left to chance. Put simply, this is something you only install once, so you are unlikely to know exactly what there is to know until you do it!”
Mr & Mrs Sharman, Reading, Berkshire
“Friendly and efficient service. They answered all my questions (and I had plenty). They always called back when asked to do so. The price was competitive. The installation went smoothly, and the system is working well. Highly recommended.”
Mr Robin James, Tadley, Berkshire
“I am exceptionally pleased with the after care service provided by GHE Solar. There was a leak on the pump assembly that was rapidly replaced by the installer. I have not been aware of my Gas Boiler switching ON to heat water since the end of April this year (2010). So my gas bill should be much reduced during the warmer months of the year. I am very pleased with the system and am expecting a further pay-back from the upcoming renewable heat incentive (RHI) plan.”
Mr and Mrs Spratt, Streatley, Berkshire
I met these people at Newbury show in Sept 2009. They installed solar water heating some months ago. The price was very reasonable and the advice, installation service, and after care was second to none. Everything is working fine.”
Mr and Mrs Cox, Marlborough, Wiltshire
“After seeing the GHE Solar stand at the Royal Berkshire Show, I purchased a solar hot water system from them in October. The system included 2 evacuated tube collectors, controller, pump, new hot water tank and all the plumbing, electrics and so forth. The guys at GHE Solar were VERY good, there was no "hard sales", they were very knowlegeable and keen to help. I seemed to get prompt replies to emails at all hours of the day and night. The installation went as planned and worked perfectly, they worked hard and did a great job. After, they helped resolve queries for the grant application. Considering the costs of the components used and man hours required for the project, I'd say that the price was a bargain. Now (April) 2010 I typically have all the "free" hot water that I can use and even in the middle of winter I would often get a big "solar boost" to take some of the load off my boiler.”
Mr and Mrs Strawson, Caldicot, Wales
“A couple of problems occurred during installation, they were dealt with by the installers with no fuss whatsoever. The whole experience was hassle-free. We got all the required information from suppliers when they came in for a quote.”
Mr Harrison, Guildford, Surrey
“Excellent pre and post sales service, They explained everything to me before purchase. Some minor errors in supplying the documentation and installation certificate to enable the grant to be claimed. These were resolved. During installation my minor concerns about the roof fittings were dealt with promptly and efficiently. Knowledgeable and no hard sell. My request during installation for a change to the standard fit was accommodated.”
Mr Ransom, Highclere, Hampshire
“The first installation worked so well I have just added a second”
Mr Lindley, Reading, Berkshire
“Having seen your stand at the Royal Berkshire Show in 2009 I contacted you in February 2010. Having made other attempts to contact other suppliers I was very pleased to receive your personal visit and subsequent quotation for the installation. Following the original quotation various changes were made to the specification to my changing requirements resulting in a quotation that satisfactorily met our needs. The installation was booked for the 19th May and went ahead very successfully with your direct supervision. I must praise your installation team on a neat a professional job. We have now enjoyed several weeks of good electricity generation and nearly 100 percent of our hot water needs. I look forward to the coming years and subsequent benefits and fuel savings.”
Mr and Mrs Hamerton, London
“GHE Solar were not only well priced but used quality parts and the installation team were friendly, efficient and came and went with very little fuss. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.”
Mr P Stuart-Kregor, Hungerford, Berkshire
“GHE Solar installed a split east-west solar thermal and south facing solar PV system for us in November 2010. We were impressed with their technical expertise and the way they explored all options to build a system that fully met our requirements. It has performed smoothly and I have had no hesitation in recommending GHE Solar to my friends.”
Mr Crawford, Pangbourne, Berkshire
“GHE Solar recently installed a 40 tube solar water heating system at my house in Wantage. The system is working very effectively and giving me hot water to 50 or 60C from early March. It was even heating the tank to 40C in January. I am very impressed with the installation and the service I have received. I would not hesitate to recommend GHE Solar to anyone.”
Mr Tench, Wantage, Oxfordshire
“I am happy to recommend your services following the very successful installation of my solar PV panels. The system and installation were fully explained at the beginning and any further queries were dealt with in a prompt and professional manner. The actual installation was carried out smoothly and effectively by a very efficient team with a minimum of disturbance despite unpleasant weather conditions. The results so far with the equipment have been excellent!”
Mr and Mrs Lewis, Maidstone, Kent
“We have just had a PV solar system fitted to the roof of our house by GHE Solar and we are very happy with the result. Howard, Ryan and the rest of the team have been helpful, responsive, knowledgeable, friendly and professional throughout from the first exploratory meeting through to post-installation follow-up. The quality of the workmanship was high for all parts of the installation including the panels, the inverter and the connection to the rest of the electrical system. The team worked creatively with a can do attitude to achieve the best form of installation for our property and the output is more than matching what had been estimated. We have no hesitation in recommending GHE Solar.”
Paul and Susannah Nicklin, Marlow, Buckinghamshire
"We are very happy with our system, it is usually busy collecting sometimes even on cloudy days. We have had excellent service from the very friendly team at GHE Solar. They are all very 'hands on' with the systems they use, so any queries are dealt with directly and expediently"
Mr and Mrs Lang, Baughurst, Hampshire
"We wanted both PV and solar hot water. We chose GHE because of their knowledge, enthusiasm and lack of hard sell. Our roof has some complications and their solution was crafted to best exploit the space and light conditions. The installation went very smoothly, a very neat job with minimal impact considering the change of water tank and associated plumbing. A small teething issue was resolved swiftly and all is running well. I'm very pleased with their service"
Mr and Mrs Ives, Fleet, Hampshire
