How To Find The Best Solar Panels For Your Home In Riddells Creek

There are hundreds of solar panel installers and retailers out there.  Choosing the right one can be an overwhelming experience. Visually, there isn’t much difference between different types of solar panels but you should know that not all solar panels are the same in terms of efficiency, service life, after-sales service, and other important factors. Residents in Riddells Creek should be aware of certain things that are important in order to get the best return on their investment in solar power.

CEC Accreditation and Approval – Clean Energy Council is the foremost accreditation authority in Australia. All the photovoltaic panels listed on its website have been fire tested which means all the panels in that list are reliable and safe. Macedon Ranges Solar Power has been approved and accredited by the Clean Energy Council.

Reliability – Most solar panel retailers and installers offer many years of warranty. Unfortunately, more than a third of such installers have simply vanished since 2011. Buyers who have bought solar panels from these retailers don’t have anywhere to go when it comes to after-sales service. This is why it’s important to choose an installer with many years of experience, and a reputation for integrity and reliability.

Solar Panel Type – Currently, more than 5,400 products are listed on the website of the Clean Energy Council. Needless to say, choosing the right product can get tricky for homeowners. It is better to choose a retailer and installer that offers products from Tier 1 manufacturers of solar panels. Macedon Ranges Solar Power offers solar panels only from the Tier 1 manufacturers. You don’t need to worry about reliability or any other issues when you buy from us.

Various Accessories – Solar panels are only a part of the complete system. Certain other products such as a solar battery or a smart meter can help you get more out of your solar panel installation. Choose a company that offers various high-quality accessories along with solar panels to get a complete package.
