  • Solar micro-renewables university study

    Hi, I'm a geography student at the University of York conducting a study on energy demand practices in relation to solar PV/solar thermal among other micro-renewable energy sources. I need people that have solar panels or other renewables energy installations in use at their home to help me by completing my 5 minute survey. The link to the survey is below, I'd be really grateful for your help

            done,. I expect you may see some inconsistent results, because several questions were asked in different ways, one needing a (5) answer, and the inverse needing a (1) answer.

              Mike90250: I had the same issue with the rating system, and while I did review my answers, I certainly may had made the opposite choice.

                Yes that is a common practice in surveys to validate respondents answers.

                  Yes - but this was done in a very clumsy way, and poor syntax. It was so bad, it stood out and I gave up on double and triple checking my answers - not my homework.

                    Yeah, I felt the same way. It could be that they speak a different form of English across the Pond.

                      Not that it matters but I didn't bother mostly for that very reason. I'd suggest that the way the survey was constructed will invalidate it in a statistical sense.
