    Hi ya before I contact any dealer direct .what sort of price would I be looking to pay for supply and fitting of say 80w panel ...think one panel of this size would be fine for the one leisure battery 125ah. However I will take on board any of your valued input ..thanks in advance. Roy

    I would fit a 100 watt minimum larger if you have the space. Not sure on price I DIY.

    I would have thought a couple of hours to fit should just about do it.

    It won't be a day to fit.

    You'll probably be looking at £350 ish for someone to supply and fit.

    I was probably going by how long it took me to fit and wire up!

    Had a 100 watt panel fitted by Detroit Solar at Peterborough couple of years ago, cost £400 (but I had to have a narrower, non-standard, panel to fit my roof - got too much else up there!). Saw they were there this year offering a 120w panel fitted at same price. Bound to be others at Newbury, get in early and ask around, they'll do it there and then. Took about an hour.
