Good advice on VAT lads, Thank you. I'll pay the 20% and run them through the accountant and see how we go. I'd rather risk the financial hit than have to keep dealing with the installer again. They taste of 1980's double glazing sales.

I am blowing out the original installer as they have been horrendous communicators since they made a mess of the battery install and the  sh*tfan They broke two confirmed battery install dates one without notice and left me sitting like a  whistlie at the house. Their fitter was in North Wales when i phoned to inquire as to his arrival time at our house in NE Scotland! I learned many years ago that when you have dirt on your shoe its best to wipe it off as fast as possible and just move on. Smiley

On the upside, it feels good to be moving on and taking control of the battery install. I detest waiting for someone else to perform and then they don't! My wife is in Singapore at the moment so empty unless the kids go round and the house is running on 4kwh per day and zero gas. Two fridges, two freezers and a hot tub cleaning cycle each day. The system has cranked out 968 kwh since 8th June. This Summer has been a great time to see solar in action for the 1st time.
