    Solar panel purchase and deliver address



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    We are in Corsica and the sun has fled south just a bit far to harvest any sunshine with our totally inadequate small solar panels.

    Heading to southern England on January 23rd and then to R o Ireland and thought UK might br a good place to get a couple of extra panels and an MPPT regulator.

    So two questions

    Any suggestions for buying some extra panels and regulator as we cross more or less directly from Dovet towards Ireland - either local sellers, or who will deliver.

    Second question and a bigger ask - is there any kind member not escaped to sunnier climes living in the south who would be willing to accept a delivery for me and allow us to call in to pick them up on the way past.

    Thanks

    What route are you taking to Ireland? If it's Pembroke Rosslare, the route from Dover will take you right past our house in Bristol (5 mins off of the M5/M4 junction.)


    There is generally someone around most of the time and if not, as I'm self employed, I can be. You're more than welcome to have them delivered here.

    A collision is what happens when two motorists go after the same pedestrian.

    I'd say that Bristol would suit matter which way we choose to go to Ireland. Thanks

    If someone further east offers then the earlier I get them the better so I'll sort something out in the next day or two and get in touch. Much appreciated

    Another option if you're travelling across the south coast is Bimble Solar near Brighton. You can make an appointment to pick up your order instead of having it delivered by a courier, which can be expensive. I've ordered from them several times in the past and can recommend them highly.

    OK thanks. If nothing else comes of it, my local geography is improving in leaps and bounds.
    BIMBLE look to have what i need so that might work pretty well. Prices are sensible too.

    Yes REC, they are!

    I might be paying a visit to Bimble in Lewes myself later in the month... they do a good price on the Victron MPPT I'm looking at.

    There's also a place along the coast at Goring by Sea called Sunstore. I'm only about half an hour away from them if there's anything I can do to help.
