Documentary evidence is required to over-write collector or solar store values. Orientation, tilt and overshading can be overwritten with visual evidence.

If the panel/collector details are available but the solar store information is not, the default values can be used for the solar store.

If the solar store is combined and details are being recorded the volume of the combined cylinder must also be recorded.

Shower type is required when solar water heating details are known. In this context "electric shower" means a shower where the water is heated by electricity as the shower runs. If the shower is supplied from a hot-water cylinder it is classified as non-electric even though the cylinder is electrically heated.
