Re: Solar P.V Panels insurance

Hi Trev, I believe you have your house insurance through Intasure? As do I, they are asking a further £118 to insure the PV panels.......

Solar P.V Panels insurance

Quick query, do other Solar PV owners out there insure the PV panels?
Is it worth doing so?
Thanks

Re: Handrail Paint

Vitex used it for 10 yrs, never flakes. It does bleach in the sun over time ,but in my opinion far more superior than Hammerite.
When a new coat is required, no prep. Required, just paint on top.

Re: pressurised water pump.

Got original cheapie pump, now 10 yrs old, still going strong.
Maybe because it's never been exposed to the elements but is contained within the pump house?
Or maybe we have been lucky.....

Re: Cyprus one of worst offenders for motorway speeding - EU report

But a lot of speed limits here are ambiguous and non sensical....
We have a 50 limit through our village which is fine except if you went 50 you'd be off the road....
Countdown speed limits off the motorway down to 30! If you did that you would be rear ended...

Re: PV-owner? Check your EAC meter...

We too have a PV system, first full year in operation.
Have just checked readings and we still have a credit of around 900 kWh...
May not be quite enough, as we have a geothermal underfloor system, so no gas or log bills.
Very pleased with the PV system overall....

Cacophony of Chainsaws.

Sat here listening to chainsaws felling Carob and other trees, just wondering is there any control over what is felled?
Never see any replanting, always happens as winter approaches, soon there won't be any trees left.....
