Recently had six solar panels fitted on my house by Green Central and I couldn’t have asked for a better service. In particular, I have to highlight the exceptional communications through out, the over all smooth running process and completely stress free experience, all down to Green Central. I now have grid independence which is valuable beyond estimation.
