Our feelings regarding your work include

  • You assessed our property with care, providing straightforward information on viable options
  • You and your team were very friendly and explained our project in a clear and concise fashion at all stages
  • The work you carried out both inside and out was neat, clean and tidy
  • The components you provided were (as far as we have researched) of a very high specification

Streatley, Oxfordshire case study

“Sims Solar fitted a 10 panel system to our garage facing south east. The system is already exceeding our expectations. We were pleasantly surprised at how well the Kyocera panels blended in against our grey slate roof; we don't even notice them. Paul obviously takes pride in his work and service, and was extremely professional, courteous and a pleasure to deal with throughout. He also fitted the panels within a very short time frame in order for us to meet the feed-in tariff deadline. We would definitely recommend Sims Solar.”

Mr and Mrs J, Streatley

Dorchester, Oxfordshire case study

“We are happy to recommend you as the installer of an excellent photo-voltaic system of solar panels. The advantage to us has been your un-pressured and friendly assessment initially, the fact that your firm specialises only in their installation, so you are highly expert (rather than other firms of builders who are merely adding to their portfolio as solar panels become the norm) and that you are local, the back-up service and help given over paperwork and selection of appropriate energy suppliers, and finally the reminders to send in the readings. In all, we are totally satisfied with the service you have given us.”

Mrs C, Dorchester

Witney, Oxfordshire case study

“I have delayed until today to reply as it is one year tomorrow my system went live. i.e. today is the 366th day (leap year). My projected generation level was 3,301 kwh. My actual is 4,010 kwh! That is 21% more than predicted. I am, as you may guess, delighted at the system. I checked the units recently to see if they needed cleaning – they were dusty due to dry weather but still delivering high generation in sun. After the rain, it washed all the dust away and so no maintenance needed."


Caversham, Berkshire case study

“I felt that Sims Solar was the most professional and open of the 5 companies I invited to quote for Solar PV installation and this was confirmed during all my further dealings with Paul. There was a short delay to the planned erection of the scaffolding but this did not affect the overall project completion. Once Paul had access to the roof, he suggested an improved installation layout (changing from 15 large panels to 17 slightly smaller) making better use of the space and delivering a slightly greater capacity. Everything was installed very tidily with no mess in the attic or house. His electrician did a very neat job and used armoured cable for the connection between the solar array and the inverter (mounted in the garage) – this safety measure was not suggested by any other company.

I have already recommended Paul to one of my friends.”

Mr M, Caversham

Wallingford, Oxfordshire case study

“The service from Sims Solar has been excellent throughout the entire process of the solar photovoltaic installation and we would highly recommend Paul Sims for any similar installations. There has been excellent support from the initial discussion of options, through the pre- and post-installation phases. This has allowed us to have a solar photovoltaic system installed that suits our property and needs rather than an off-the-shelf solution.

Wallingford, Oxfordshire case study

Paul fitted a fourteen panel PV array on our house in August 2010. We found him to be knowledgeable, personable, reliable and trustworthy – having no doubts about leaving him our house key in our absence. Paul met deadlines and kept appointments punctually. The neat installation was finished in the time expected and on budget, with minimal disturbance and no surprises! The documentation provided pre and post installation was comprehensive and professional in appearance. Paul has been available for post installation support, but at the time of writing – after five months – the system has, as expected, been trouble free. Paul's sub-contractors (electricians and scaffolders) were all calm, competent, courteous and considerate, and a pleasure to have around.

We recommend him and his services unreservedly.”
