Agghhh, I have spent the entirety of yesterday, a rainy day, trying to work out which systems and which electrical bits and bobs to buy. During the lockdown, I have been enjoying a little online shopping flutter, I bought some nice jeans and am now awaiting my Merrells. But, how can I tell from a trade catalogue what the downlights, spotlights, switches, connectors, cables, the solar flipping panel is like? I need to get close and personal to really see if it is what I need.
I have created what I think is the wishlist
for my solar needs, seems a rather pricey way to suck the energy from the sun and into my water and electrical batteries. Thank goodness for specialists who I can talk to… Mmmm maybe later, it’s 5.30am and I been have up for an hour, awoken by the rising sun hitting the newly inserted aluminium window inserts, which ricochets directly into my bedroom. Wake up world, it’s a lovely day.
Do not buy any of it.
Item 1 – Too expensive, check individual prices.
Item 2 – Don’t need, that type cable not required, too short.
Item 3 – Very poor quality, don’t need, already have.
Item 4 – Wrong Type, for flat roof.
Item 5 – Wrong Type, for flat roof.
Item 6 – Unnecessary, over-priced, pay for label, not for product.
Item 7 – Cheap China crap, will blow-up at any time.
Item 8 – Cheap crap, <400 cycles, only last a year.
