Solar panels in Australia have become revolutionary in reducing the bills and dependency of people and organizations on the energy produced by fossil fuels. It is no wonder that Australia is now a hub for solar panels and solar energy generation systems. All this was possible by the introduction of solar panel rebates. There are many solar panels providers in many parts of Australia, some are domestic manufacturers and some are dealers of imported panels for other countries. Solar panels and energy generation systems are fairly new thus many people either do not have an idea of what to choose and from whom to choose. A solar panel provider might be the solution to this problem but before striking any deal one must be cautious enough to make a check and then only proceed further on the purchase hence here are a few of the checks that must be done before making any deal with a solar panel provider.
What are they charging?
Your Budget must be your top priority. The Australian market has a number of providers and they sell solar panels of all ranges but choosing the correct one is an important thing. You must choose a solar panel that meets your requirements of daily power supply consumption. Another thing is that solar panels are available in EMI and other conditions as they will be an important factor. A solar panel is a long time investment hence you must see that your current budget for the panels fits with the cost of the solar panels. If your budget is not so high then you can go for a domestic manufacturer whose prices would be automatically low. Also if you purchase the solar panels directly from the company and do not involve any middleman there is a high possibility of the reduction of costs.
Be thorough prior to installation
You must also check the insights of the solar panels and its provider. The factors here we are talking about are the rate of power consumption, the size of the panels as they should fit within the premises, the installation and the maintenance services and the product warranty. Installation of the solar panels must be done by the provider and its cost must be included in the tax invoice. Every year there must be maintenance and repairs be done on the solar panels and the energy generation systems. And the frequency of this maintenance must also be discussed before. Every year the quality of the solar panels reduces by a certain percentage also with time the energy generation systems technology improves so if it’s possible new installation of the technology must be included in the maintenance charges. One of the most important factors to be checked are the performance warranties. If there is any failure or fault in the solar panel or the other systems, then what will the warranties cover and for what period of time.
Don’t ignore the visual appearance
The design of the solar panels is the most important as it must be too large and bulky that it is very hard to install and maintain also during harsh weather conditions, the solar panels must be designed so that they sustain minimum damage. This ensures that the longevity of the solar panels is not affected by uneven conditions like harsh weather. Also, the modules of the solar panels must be available with a special anti-corrosion coating that prevents erosion of the solar cells due to the humid weather from the sea. This plays a major role in the longevity of the solar panels, thus you can save the money one would have to spend for the repairs.
Double-check their compatibility
The compatibility of solar panels is the most important factor while doing any purchase of solar panels. Compatibility means that the amount of energy the solar panels are producing is enough to sustain your daily household needs and also decrease the cost you pay for the electricity from the generation plants and it has storage batteries that will activate when the weather is rainy or is cloudy.
