Australians need to be careful of solar providers selling systems one day and going out of business the next.
According to the Consumer Action Law Centre, close to 700 solar companies have gone out of business since 2011. These solar businesses are often those offering remarkably low prices. However, the products they offer may lack the necessary design and engineering standards and long-term functionality. To get to low prices, shortcuts often need to be taken sometimes resulting in having to cease operation.
This leaves thousands of Australian households with no assistance and worthless warranties in the event something goes wrong over the life of their system.
Solahart is one of Australia’s largest PV and solar hot water providers and has been the trusted name in solar since 1953, with a dealer network that spans all around Australia. But, while Solahart has a national presence, it’s our dealers’ knowledge of their local customers that helps deliver great energy savings. We have installed more than one million solar water heaters worldwide and over one million solar power panels in Australia. Our high-quality products, trusted warranties, and demonstrated longevity are the factors that Australians need to consider when switching to solar.
