Buyer beware: The dark side of solar


Hundreds of Aussie solar companies are going broke… Don’t be one of their victims… 

Are you sick of being bombarded by leaflets in the mail… 

And unsolicited phone calls all day… 

Promising to wipe out your energy bill with an “affordable” solar installation. 

But don’t be so quick to believe the claims about some solar products. 

Rogue players in the market have given solar installation a bad name. 

Hundreds of solar companies have gone out of business over the last decade. 

These fly-by-night companies sell cheap imitations of the real thing. 

And although the products are covered by warranty.. The manufacturers have shown they won’t stand by their word. 

Some homeowners have spent thousands of dollars on a solar install… 

Only to see nothing in return. 

Their solar install doesn’t perform as advertised. 

It just ends up in the trash a couple of years down the line. 

Can you imagine the pain and frustration of being in this situation? 

Why even bother getting solar in the first place, if it’s not going to work? 

This is money down the drain for the homeowner. 

Ironically, these fake solar products are also a problem for pollution. 

Faulty solar panels are quickly adding to landfill. 

Unsafe solar products can also lead to other serious issues. 

Such as a fire in the roof of your home, due to equipment failure. 

So what’s the reason behind the dark side of solar?

Experts NEVER stand on the panels. Not only does this crack the panels, but it’s also dangerous.

Technology is moving faster than regulation can keep up with. 

You can think of the issue as being similar to the Airbnb movement. 

While some hosts and guests have the common sense to do the right thing… 

There are cases of angry residents… 

Who are fed up with a poorly run Airbnb in the neighbourhood. 

The hosts may just be after some quick cash… 

So they attract low-quality tenants to the property. 

In the solar market, there is a segment made up of solar resellers. 

These installers work on commission. 

So they use pushy sales tactics to move more units of product.

Here’s the good news about the Australian solar industry… 

You’re not sure where to start with your solar installation project. 

You look online and you see tonnes of solar product reviews… 

With all the information overload.. you don’t know who to trust or what’s right for your situation. 

So how can you protect yourself from being stung by bad solar companies? 

Luckily the solar industry in Australia has introduced a regulatory body. 

Clean Energy Council (CEC) Australia is working to improve the standard of solar installation. 

CEC provides training and accreditation for solar companies. 

A solar installer can apply to Clean Energy Council for accreditation to design and or install solar. 

The Clean Energy Council website provides a search tool for you to find accredited solar companies. 

As you can see for yourself on the CEC website, Pulse Electrical is an accredited installer

This means our technicians have undergone the training required to install solar, along with access to continually updated information.
