Before you sign on the dotted line to install a Solar PV System at your home or business here's 3 important things we think you should consider:
1. First and foremost make sure you are purchasing Solar from a reputable business and that the whoever is designing and installing your system is accredited with the Clean Energy Council. Not only is this important to ensure your system complies with the relevant industry and safety standards but it is also necessary to claim any relevant government incentives and rebates. You can check if your installer is accredited on the CEC website.
2. Ensure you are getting value for money. Don't be afraid to get a few quotes but make sure that the Solar System quoted is custom designed to suit your power needs. There is no one-size-fits-all approach so a competent designer and installer will do their homework! This includes at the very least a site inspection and an assessment of your power bill so they can quote a Solar System that will specifically cater to your power needs. A local installer will also be able to offer you follow-up service.
3. ASK! Do your research and ask lots of questions before you sign any contracts!
Examples of questions you might like to ask include:
