    This last week I've noticed quite a few houses with solar panels. I'm going to put leaflets through the doors of the said houses. Plus I'm going to drive round and note down ones I've not spotted as yet.

    Before I do, I need to come up with a pricing plan. So far I've come up with 1x £5, 2X £9, 3x £13, 4x £17, 5x £20, 6x £23, 7x £25. The price per panel comes down slightly the more you've got.

    Any other pricing ideas appreciated.

    Also, what pole to use? Would a 40 foot pole do? CLX or SLX? Not got that size pole as yet as I'm going to see what kind of feed back I get first.

    RC, I've used your pics, hope that's ok.

    Cheers.

    i charge £30 for a standard 16 pannel set up, comes down if they only have a few then if they have more, its £3 per one.

    yer thats fine, dont mind u using them.

    i use a 42ft pole and get on fine with that one. dont forget that some are harder to access than others,

    I'm doing a straight £3 per panel. It's easy and the customer knows exactly what they'll be paying.

    What if they have 5/6 panels. What do you charge then? I've seen some with only 2 on the roof. I need to charge a half decent price if I've got to go out of my way just for 1 panel.

    [font="Segoe UI Semibold""]Do you want to make more money/electricity? [/font]​

    [font="Segoe UI Semibold""]Have you ever thought that your solar panels are dirty and not letting as much light through as you would like? Or have you thought, “how am I going to manage to clean my solar panels now they are up on the roof out of reach?”[/font]

    [font="Segoe UI Semibold""]I have the answer!![/font]

    [font="Segoe UI Semibold""]I use “PURE” water, fed through a pole with a soft bristled brush on the end. The water goes through a deionisation process to purify it. This process extracts all the chemicals found in tap water. The water is brushed all over the panels to clean the dirt, then more water is used to rinse the panel and leave it spot free![/font]

    [font="Segoe UI Semibold""]Below is a panel that has been cleaned on one side to show how much dirt they accumulate. The cleaner they are the better they will work for you.[/font]
