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.....

Re: Travel Insurance

Also check whether ,in the small print,it needs you to be registered for at least 6 mths with a gp.
Which,if like me, you only have private health care, because I'm too young to be registered with the state system, doesn't count. Therefore your travel insurance is void.

Re: Travel Insurance

The point I'm trying to get across is that , having private health care means you can go to any hospital for treatment. An insurance company cannot trace your history... because you may have used several for different ailments. Trust me Insurance Companies will wriggle out of paying any claim if the...
