When the Gaydon family had solar panels installed on the roof of their house, their intention was to reduce their electricity bills and improve their home so that the future energy needs of their family was secure. What they didn’t expect was a system that generated even more energy than they use on a daily basis.

The family, who live in Kenn, Devon, have been astounded by how well their solar panels have performed. “Having solar installed on our family home was a considered long-term decision for us,” said Sally Gaydon. “We wanted something that would help secure our lasting energy needs and be an investment that would benefit our children in the future.

“Despite having high expectations though, I was still astonished at just how much electricity the system has generated. This will give us excellent Feed-in Tariff payments and significantly lower electricity bills.”

World’s best panels

SunGift designed a bespoke system for the Gaydon’s with ‘BenQ 320 Watt’ panels, which are one of the world’s most efficient solar panels.

Sally added: “Richard and I were extremely impressed with Joe Perry from SunGift who carried out our survey because not only was he enthusiastic and passionate, but also he was exceptionally professional and knowledgeable. The work SunGift carried out on our property was extremely slick and professional too, with every aspect of the system being carried out to the highest standards. We can’t fault SunGift in any way and we recommend them to everyone we know who express an interest in renewable energy.”

“We’ve designed and installed many BenQ systems and they are all giving exceptional results,” said Joe Perry. They’re a particularly good solution for those who have little roof space, as they deliver more electricity per squared meter than standard panels.”
