Re: Making the best of a bad solar PV installation

Hi, not sure the battery would be the problem, more the way it is managed and what SEG you are on. The Agile tariff is by far the bast – with people charging their batteries over night at the cheap rate and selling back to the grid during peak times.

Re: Fitting a 25kg bathroom cabinet to plasterboard wall
