The dark side of Australia's rooftop solar energy obsession
The ABC ran a key story about the solar industry on its popular show the 730. This Article followed a journey of a particular consumer who thought they got a great deal only to be left with a hefty repair bill. This was mainly due to the components used by the company installing the equipment. When acting as a consumer we are easily enticed by the cheapest price. Fair enough we all want to spend as little as possible to achieve as much as possible. Working in industries such as this I have always lived by this principle. "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten." Benjamin Franklin. We at State Energy Co are often having to fix up other companies errors by replacing roof top isolators, inverters and panels. The below video goes into greater detail i have broken down some of the key points below.
An audit found 1.2 per cent of rooftop solar installations have been inspected by the Clean Energy Regulator The regulator's inspections found one in six solar installations were "substandard", and about one in 30 were "unsafe" Based on the sample, the audit found there would be tens of thousands of "unsafe" installations What do we do to stop this. State Energy Co. is dedicated to offering quality equipment, down to the smallest of components. We regularly audit and inspect our own work and make sure all staff members adhere to safety standards. In addition to this we adhere to the Solar Retailer Code of Conduct set out by the CEC.
