It shouldn’t come as a surprise that, after seeing energy prices soar, many homeowners are interested in installing solar panels for their homes. While shopping for solar panels and dreaming of generating free energy can be exciting, it’s also extremely important that you choose the right solar panel installer for your home.
Firstly, as the demand for renewable energy increases, many businesses are entering the market, offering varying levels of service and product quality. Considering the initial cost of many home solar panel setups, you certainly don’t want to waste your hard-earned money on a subpar system.
We’ve put together three important factors to consider when choosing a solar panel installation company in Sydney:
Experience and Reputation
It should come as no surprise that experience and reputation speak volumes in the renewable energy business, as it does in many other trades. Years of experience and a positive reputation certainly stand out as big green flags that you’re dealing with a genuine solar panel installer, and you can also rest assured that the products used (and importantly, their installation techniques) are of high-quality.
Cuthill Electrical has fully licensed, insured, and qualified technicians with a wealth of professional experience and a specialisation in solar energy. Work with us and enjoy the benefits of green energy for your home.
Quality of Products and Services
A solar panel may seem like just a solar panel, but even a small amount of digging online and you’ll find that they can vary quite a bit in terms of efficiency, quality, and cost. What you ideally should be looking for, with no exceptions, are solar photovoltaic (PV) panels with excellent efficiency ratings.
The lifespan of solar panels can vary quite a bit, even if they are made of high-quality materials. Generally, expect to get around 25 years of use out of your solar panels before needing to replace them. Don’t settle for solar panels made of shoddy materials.
Instead, look for high-efficiency, durable, and low-maintenance solar panels. Cuthill Electrical uses just that – high-quality, durable solar panels and inverters that are designed to last for many years to come.
Pricing and Finance Options
Much like for other investments into your home, installing a full solar panel system can be fairly costly, with the full costs being practically all up-front. While a small system may be affordable and you may be able to pay out of pocket, solar panel installations with high kWh generation costing thousands and thousands of dollars may not.
For this reason, Cuthill Electrical has partnered with industry leader Brighte to assist homeowners with the financing of their solar PV system. Brighte can provide completely interest-free loans for installations costing up to $30,000, which lets you get started ASAP with your very own clean, green energy.
Your chosen solar panel installer should always be willing to offer competitive prices, firstly, but they should also be willing to assist you with financing as well as applying for government subsidies such as the STC rebate in Australia.
