Avoid Making a Decision Based on Price
While it may be tempting to choose the cheapest solar panels and installation services, it can prove much costlier in the long run as low quality panels tend to malfunction and poorly installed solar units not only run inefficiently but also present a deadly safety hazard. Your investment in solar should be a one-time expense which, with long lasting components and trained experts by your side, should pay for itself without unexpected equipment issues. If a solar company is offering a significantly lower quote than its competitors, it may be cause for suspicion.
The first thing to check is whether your solar company is CEC accredited. This industry leading council is made up of over 500 companies dedicated to energy efficiency and provides a government approved solar panels installers list you can check on their website.
Customised Installation Services
Some solar companies will use a one size fits all approach to solar installation and send you a quotation without visiting or assessing your home. A trusted solar company will provide you with a comprehensive solar plan with itemised quotations and a dedicated, custom approach specific to your location.
Customer Focused Warranty Agreements
Australian regulations require all solar panels to offer a minimum warranty of 10 years on the product and up to 25 years on the performance of your panels. When it comes to your entire solar system, however, each company determines the warranty they want to (or do not want to) offer to customers. Check to make sure that your solar company has a clearly worded and comprehensive warranty which protects you.
