ALERT Solar energy problem !!!!

Julie from St Heliers

We have solar heated hot water. Trying to save the planet.

More correctly - had solar hot water. We now have no hot water. The system stopped heating the cylinder the night before yesterday and hot water ran out yesterday morning. At three pm yesterday I started phoning to find someone to fix it.

I phoned two local electricians. After taking about two hours to call back, they said they don't fix solar. Don't know anything about it. The problem is that we have a solar power system linked to our hot water cylinder. Mercury Power installed it about a year ago. They said call Mercury.

So I called Mercury, who asked me who installed the system. I said you did. They said no, we used a subcontractor, who was that? I said we do not know because we thought you installed it, because we paid you. They said, sorry, but we don't know who installed it. Never mind, we will put you in touch with our technical people, they might be able to help.

Opps, it was now after 4.30 pm and they had all gone home. No after hours service.

So I called Mercury again. They said oh dear. We will put you through to Vector. They will be able to help.

Vector said... no we don't help. We don't do Solar. But Mercury said you did, I pleaded. So they checked with the supervisor. Oh, yes, Vector DO have a Solar technical team. Its another number. But they have gone home. They will ring you, I was told. we waited.... Of course... no call.

Today is a new day. At 9am I started again. I called Mecrury 0800101810. The nice lady told me they don't fix solar. But she would put me through to Vector Solar. 0800707030. I tried the extension that said "we can help" - but that extension puts you through to a voice message that cheerfully says - " Leave your number - we will ring you back".

Hmmm. They didn't ring us back last night, so I was a bit cross. My message was not friendly, icily compliant, I might say. I blew it.

Now I think I need to resort to cunning. I called the Vector sales inquiry number and left my number. Ah ha! A human called back just about straight away. She was very nice. She said the Technical Team probably checked our address from the number I left and realised we are not their customer.

But Mercury told us to call them... I pleaded. I am becoming confused. desperate. She took pity. She said someone from the Vector technical team will call me. But not for a few hours. Because they need to have a few conversations. It is 09.34 am.

HELP. HELP. Any suggestions???.
