When it comes to solar it is always wise for a customer to check whether the solar company has the Clean Energy Council accreditation to install solar systems. Ask them whether they have qualified installer/ designer. You should check whether they have the appropriate builders license(this is required as solar panel installation is regarded as building work) and an electrical contractor’s licence. According to the governing laws and regulations a solar company must have these credentials. Otherwise the solar system is not covered by manufacturer’s warranty regardless what they promised you and the building work is not going to be covered by your home or business building insurance in case something happens.

When selecting your solar company, make sure you choose a reputable company with proven experience. You should find out how long they have been in the solar industry and whether they are an established company that will be around in the future if things go wrong. Jump on their company website to check the testimonials or ask them to show you what solar systems they have done in your area. If you know their past customers contact some of them to find out if they were knowledgeable, easy to work with, and took the time to explain the system’s operation. Also find out if their systems are working well, if there have been any problems, and, if so, if their installer returned to fix them.
