Cheaper products, services and quotes always present a tempting bargain. With the increase of solar energy companies in Australia
today, it’s a greater time than ever to find a great quote! Although solar energy companies are no doubt competing to offer the best deal, it’s important you ask them how they are able to offer a ‘good’ solar system at such a quote.
If you’re paying a bit less for solar panels that are more likely to break down faster, or unreliable installers, you’ll in fact be losing a lot more of the value of your money than you gain.
It’s unfortunate, but cheaper low-end solar panels rarely ever deliver a good return on profits for the money, time and labour required to have them installed. These low-quality solar panels often also break down within a much shorter interval of time.
Ask your installers where on the price range their solar products and installations tend to lean, and what’s led them to price themselves that way. Higher costs could be a result of the solar products they are using, added training or a speciality; but it could also be a result of expecting customers to not compare costs. While lower costs could be from low-grade solar products, smart supplier arrangements or the advantage of a smaller company with lower cost overheads.
After a solar assessment, most installers will give you a few options if you ask them. You can look up these solar panel brands online and see what other people are saying about them too. To get a good idea before you commit to anything.
Where does Solar System Pty. Ltd. stand in price, and why?
At Solar System Pty. Ltd., we offer our customers the best answer for both quality and pricing.

We also proudly display the solar brands that we deal in: Longi, Jinko, Solis, SolarEdge, QCells and Canadian Solar.
Question 3: Are your installers accredited, and are your products approved, by the Clean Energy Council?
If you’ve kept seeing ‘CEC’ around when it comes to solar panels, you probably know that this acronym stands for the Clean Energy Council. It’s an Australian organisation dedicated to expansion and transition into clean energy. But what significance does it hold when you’re looking for installers?
The Clean Energy Council accredits solar installers based on the design and installation of solar systems. These installers deliver the best practice for solar panel, inverter, and battery installations.
The CEC also approves solar retailers for responsible and best practice in selling solar products. Signing on with a solar company with this support means you can trust them to provide a reliable solar energy system. Only providing CEC approved products, installed by CEC accredited installers.
This means you can gain the benefit of the Government’s solar rebates for a more affordable installation. Therefore, asking this question is never a step you want to miss!
Does Solar System Pty. Ltd. work with CEC accredited installers, using CEC approved products?
Yes! All of our installers at Solar System Pty. Ltd are CEC accredited. We also use only the leading brand solar panels, inverters, and batteries that have been approved by the Clean Energy Council.
