Working to stamp out bad solar panel installations
A Good Installer Guarantee has been launched to protect homeowners from poorly installed solar panels.
SolarQuotes has said it aims to provide peace of mind to homeowners who request up to three quotes through the SolarQuotes platform.
Through the program, customers need only provide some evidence that shows there may be issues with installation, and then SolarQuotes will work with the homeowner to rectify those issues. If the original installer does not satisfactorily fix up the identified problems, SolarQuotes will arrange for the work to be done by another installer at no extra cost to the homeowner.
This will give more peace of mind to potential solar panel buyers, as it ensures they will get a well-installed solar panel system in their homes.
SolarQuotes founder Finn Peacock said the platform's trust factor is a key to its success and the guarantee is an example of that.
"It's humbling and pretty incredible just how many people have put their faith in SolarQuotes and the installers we work with to get solar. We're proud of our network of heavily vetted solar installers and the quality of their work.
"Unfortunately, over my 13 years in the solar industry, I've seen a lot of dodgy companies come and go, so I understand the cynicism that exists in the community, but what we are guaranteeing is that customers will get what they were promised.
"We can do this because of our strict, installer vetting procedure, honed over 12 years."
The SolarQuotes website attracts almost a million page views per month, and more than 50,000 reviews are available to help people choose installers and products with confidence.
SolarQuotes connects customers to over 450+ individually vetted installers around Australia. Since SolarQuotes was founded in 2009, the company has been the catalyst for one in 18 Australian homes installing solar on their home or business.
SolarQuotes is offering this formal guarantee on the quality of every install it is involved with going forward.
