Shane Clayton, from Gippsland Solar, has worked full-time as a solar specialist for the past 15 years. He says an accredited provider will bring focus to your energy decisions. “If you are considering installing a solar system you need someone who can help you with a proper analysis of usage, bills and needs,” Clayton says. “And to determine what your electricity supply is like. The available roof area and your budget are other important factors.”
Solar is a long-term investment and for that reason Clayton steers customers towards quality, high-performance products with stronger warranties. He stresses the need to engage a licensed installer to ensure safety standards are met. “Quality components and a good supplier history are essential,” he says.
Likewise, researching batteries and discussing your needs with an accredited battery designer will ensure you choose the right system for your needs and that it is correctly and safely set-up.
