Solar Power Problems

Our PV solar power array on the navvy hut roof has done well, generating 14,000 kw/h plus in six years.   Our energy supplier Utility Warehouse have done less well at believing our readings - or those of its own meter readers.

Recently, the most expensive part of the system, the Aurora inverter, failed with a 'hardware fault', outside its 5 year warranty period of course.

so was replaced with a very similarly sized Solis:

Once bitten, I looked into the warranty period for these.   'Standard' warranty is 5 years but if you are in the good old US of A it is 10 years.   Curious that.   Different sort of sunshine perhaps.   But no worries, some UK suppliers offer 10 years.

I shall report further.
