The Solar Edge type does boost the performance of the panels, especially ones like ours where the end panel is partly shaded by an adjacent gable end by the end of the afternoon. With ordinary inverters, when the power input to one ...

Re: Card fraud

Researching the Clear Renewable website, http://www.clearrenewable.org I see they claim to be members of 'The Fair Trades Association', complete with what purports to be an impressive badge of the sort that is normally a link to another site.

Re: Card fraud

I've written to the firm, outlining my complaint about their methods, and am awaiting their reply. When I get this, or after a week if nothing happens, I shall complain to Trading Standards (there's an online form to do this) and also update our own original installer about what has happened.

Re: Cat deterrent- 1st post!

Hi Josh, and welcome to the Forum. How do the cats get into the run? Presumably over the top of some kind of mesh or netting, because the run isn't roofed, and is perhaps near to a fence or something they can scramble up on? Or maybe under the netting, if it's not buried in the ground? I can't help ...

Re: First time raising quails

hi Concerned Parent, glad you got a couple. yes, leave them 24 hours, like all baby chicks they have reserves of food from the yolk sac and its more important to let them dry off thoroughly and stay warm than to eat at this stage.
