    Can anyone tell me who actually registers your solar panels when you have them installed. I had panels installed last year these were panels that I paid for, not ones that are installed for free?

    Think as well as planning permission to have them installed you also need permission to connect to the national grid.

    but does anyone know who is supposed to register the panels? I have had the panels since last April and have just found out that they have to be registered, isn't the company who installed them supposed to register them or at least let you know that they have to be registered

    You don't need planning permission to have solar panels due to permitted development, am still interested who does the registering of solar panels. I am being sent a form to fill in regarding this

    What does the company who fitted them say?

    Hi stuaz, I doubt it, I had to threaten to take them to court over the electrician they used to connect up my solar panels, he had doubled up the fuses on one of the existing fuses on my board, hence it was tripping my electricity. They said they would pay the work and new board which was done in September, I was eventually paid in February, giving my excuses that the cheque was in the post etc. I could phone the rep that sold me the plan in the first place, but last time I spoke to him he was only doing one day a week for the company, sounds to me like the company was naff

    I
    I suspect that the installer needs to register it, to confirm certification of the installer and installation (ie like you would expect from a GasSafe installation registration to be completed by the certified/registered installer)

    Had a look on the pack I got from the installer last night, and the covering letter says that I was live and connected up. Havent heard yet from the fuel company that I joined up recently who was sending me a form to fill in for registration

    Not necessarily, it's the company that pays for the excess you deliver into the grid.

    I've got the paperwork somewhere for my late step father's installation, I will dig it out and see if there is anything on the about registration.
