- 01Good quality hardware
This will be your panels and inverters. In the day and age we live in, its very simple to jump online and do your own research on these. PROPOWER only use the top 5 brands in the world. This will minimise issues long term which means more savings and less headaches for you.
- 02A Professional installation
This means making sure all work is carried out to current compliance and all materials used are of the highest of standards. This includes wiring, racking, switches, penetrations down to the last screw. Another factor that people overlook is the experience of the installers working on your site. Unfortunately, there is many ways in which $1000s of dollars can be cut in the installation process. Most of the cheap and nasty companies will send the jobs out to dozens of installers and see comes in the cheapest. Guess what, the cheapest price wins, which means the cheapest work will be done on your home or business. They simply must, to make a profit. At PROPOWER, all our installers have 10+ years industry experience so rest assured your in safe hands.
- 03Exceptional After sales service
Installing a quality system is one thing, but how about if you have an issue in the future? Will the come and fix it? How long will it take? Do they charge you a call out fee? Always read their terms and conditions. They must have a workmanship warranty. Also check if it mentions how long it will take to fix the issue. If your system takes 6 months to fix it could cost you hundreds/thousands of dollars in wasted downtime and avoidable stress. A PROPOWER solar system comes with a 10 years workmanship and any issues will be rectified within 7 Business days from notification. Now that’s service!!
HOW SOLAR WORKS
You're about to save your wallet and the planet!
WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR
- 01Site Inspections
Before you get a quote make sure they do a site visit not just a phone consult. There’s many reasons for this including the fact that you could be stung with variation cost on the day of installation. You should thoroughly discuss your usage habits and layout to get the best size system for your needs. Bigger is not always better. Also, by doing a site visit you can get a feel for the company to see how they operate. Getting a solar system installed is a service not a product. You want to make sure they will attend to your needs today and in the future if any issues arise. We will always come onsite to explain everything to you and why so many choose over the competition.
- 02Fly by night companies
Unfortunately, the solar industry is riddled with these guys. They will install your system and promise the world. When you call to get some advice or fix an issue, they are no longer around. The main reason for this is so they don’t warranty your system. In majority of cases this is the cheap and nasty companies who cant afford to repair their dodgy work. Because its so cheap, they need to cut corners on the installation to make a profit. This is a recipe for disaster. If the installation is not compliant, your warranties on the products you have chosen are null and void. Regardless of what you were told. The best way to check this is to make sure the company has been registered for a few years with the governments ABN lookup . Also do a Fair Trading search on the company. When looking at reviews, always filter them out to view the lowest first. This will give you a clearer indication of what who dealing with.
- 03Over promising savings
Many salespeople will purposely overpromise savings to win the job. Over the years we have seen it all. No one can promise you a $0 power bill. The only thing they can guarantee is the performance of your solar system. Make sure there is a performance guarantee in your agreement you signed. This is very important. If the system is not installed correctly, it won’t perform to its potential, regardless of the products you choose. If it doesn’t produce the power it's not going to save you money. It's that simple. We guarantee the performance of all our solar systems. We under estimate all our systems performance so we can back it up with our exclusive Money Back Guarantee.
- 04Sales Jargon
If your reading this, there is a high chance you will scroll through social media and see posts trying to sell solar using words like “ Get 2 free panels” or “Government rebate is ending”. The fact is the government rebate drops every January the 1st and isn’t ending until 2030. The 2 free panels they are giving you, well I hate to break it to you but nothing in life is free.
- 05Dirt cheap prices
When it comes to solar, or anything in life anything in life, you get what you pay for. There are dozens of ads promoting 6.6kw systems for less than $4000. Is it possible? Yes!! Is it possible to have great products with a quality installation and reliable after sales service for this price?? If its too good to be true, it usually is. We cover this and more during our consultations.
