Top 9 Mistakes When Buying Solar

At Evergreen Electrical, we have been designing and installing solar systems for the last 12 years. Using our experience we have put together our top 9 mistakes when buying solar.

1. Waiting For A Price Drop

Your cumulative electricity savings will be significantly higher than the savings from waiting for installations to become cheaper.

2. Only Getting 1 Quote

You can use sites such as solar quotes to get quotes from several companies without having to fill out your details multiple times.

3. Rebate vs. Feed-in Tariff

Understanding what government/state level incentives are applicable to your installation can help save you money.

4. Beware of Scams

Some solar companies stop customer service once the sale is completed and share inaccurate information to increase profits.

5. Ask the Right Questions

This will help you understand what system is best for you, your lifestyle and your budget. The more information you have the better!

6. Panel Direction

Choosing the right panel direction is based on when your power usage is highest and not just pointing North.

7. Picking the Right Brand

Don't pay for a branded price tag. There are multiple Tier 1 solar installations that will be excellent quality on a budget.

8. Understanding Maintenance Costs

After-sales support is very important for solar energy solutions as they last for decades. Don't choose a cheap provider that will neglect this.

9. Read the Warranty

In general there are 4 warranties that cover your solar system. Understanding these is important in evaluating the quality of your installation.
