WAS TOLD BY 2 OTHER RELIABLE (HAVING GOOD REVIEWS) PROVIDERS THAT DUE TO ROOF DESIGN NOT FEASIBLE/BENEFICIAL TO EVEN PROVIDE QUOTATION.

2ND PROVIDER SAID ACCORDING TO ROOF DESIGN WOULD NOT PROVIDE QUOTATION AS TOO SMALL

Would like to hear from Marty & Clean Energy Reviews Panel/Forum your views on the above quotation. Seems very expensive for the small system but was told that it would be expensive due to roof design.
Wondering if it is going to be beneficial to me, given the high price and two out of three providers stating that roof design of this two storey town house does not lend itself to providing adequate space for proper installation of bigger system. Clean Energy website recommendation being 6.5KW Panels and 5Kw inverter size
Help & advice sought, please
