Solar energy installations do vary in price considerably even if the identical equipment and materials are used.
The main reason for this is the cost one solar installer may have for;
- Salary for Salespersons
Solar-You do not have salespersons, invest very little on advertising and the result is minimum overheads and customer savings.
Solar-You do not make profit on solar materials or equipment, so we are not biased toward selling higher priced equipment or materials, result customer savings.
All solar equipment currently sold in Australia are manufactured to very high standards, if they don’t meet these standards they cannot be listed on the CEC solar equipment approved list and cannot be connected to the grid not can the government rebate be claimed.
We believe Solar-You offer affordable solar energy solutions from out budget range of solar packages or if you want to tailor your solar energy system with your preferred solar materials and equipment.
T1/T2 Solar Modules or Panels
Tier 1 / Tier 2 solar module rating is nothing to do with quality, it is a banking and investment rating, a T1 company is viewed or rated as being a more viable with less risk the a T2 company, again nothing to do with the quality of equipment they manufacturer.
If technical data was compared between solar panels, you would find very little difference between the lowest priced solar panel and the highest priced solar panel, plus they both have identical warranty periods.
European or Asian manufactured solar equipment. Most solar equipment is now manufactured in China, regardless of the brand name.
European termed inverters carry a much higher price than Asian manufactured solar inverters, again if you compare technical data you will find both inverters have almost the same technical specification. You may even find that Chinese manufactured inverters provide longer warranty periods.
DON’T BE FOOLED BY ‘SALES TALK’, REMEMBER “the more it costs the more commission made for a sales team.”
Installation costs will be about the same for every installer and quality of work should be of very high standard as all installers have to be CEC approved, with approvals to cover solar installation, battery installation, off grid installation, all of which carry separate endorsements with the need to attend courses and pass examinations.
