*flergle*

Today I got up so early(for me) that I'm a little dizzy still.

I have three people working on my house. One on the aircon, plus the electrician and his son who are installing solar panels (tomorrow Eldest Brother joins them).

This is all great, but the panels won't get switched on until the power company gets someone out to reprogramme the electricity meter which can take up to 10 weeks. And presumably just means someone meanders along one quiet afternoon, flicks a few switches and leaves a card in the letterbox which I throw out because it looks like junkmail, and I don't notice the change for another year.

What an anti-climax.

I want a big lever, and a loud "phoooomph" when it goes on. Also champagne and streamers.

Also, the bloke in charge just asked me if I'd worked out where I want the inverter to go yet. Inverter...? Go...? Wha...? Um.....

I can send you streamers, if that would help at all.

We had 123 solar panels installed on the roof of our building at school. The invertor was installed in the storeroom next to the classroom where I teach. Imagine the noise of 123 panels being carried across the roof, installed, workman in boots stomping around, drilling into the wall next to us..... we were ready to have a party when they finished! Amusingly, the workmen did ask me if the radio they were playing on the roof was bothering us. Radio? What radio? Couldn't hear it above the sound of their mighty boots!
