Avoid These 6 Common Mistakes When Buying Solar Panels

Many people believe that solar panels are not efficient for their homes because of the way their roof is oriented. However, the best decision about whether or not to buy solar panels depends on your understanding of how solar power is generated. With the help of the best solar panel installer, you can be sure to make the best decision for your needs.

Common Mistakes People Do While Buying Solar Panels

1. Not Knowing The Proper Size For The Solar Panels System

The size of a solar panel system depends on two things:

  • Your financial flexibility
  • How much power your house or place of business needs

The size of your solar power system is measured in watts or kilowatts. This tells you the maximum amount of electricity your system can produce during peak hours on a clear, sunny day.

Your most recent electricity bill should include the total number of kilowatt-hours you used in the past four quarters. To calculate your annual electricity usage, simply add up the usage from each of the four quarters.

2. Looking Forward To Much Cheaper Solar Batteries

Solar batteries were once seen as a luxury item, but they are becoming more affordable all the time. This is leading many people to postpone installing solar panels until battery prices come down even further. However, now is a great time to go solar, as there are still many discounts and buyback programs available.

3. Insufficient Quote Research

It is important to get multiple quotes from different solar installers before making a purchase. This will help you compare prices and services, and avoid getting scammed by companies that offer inflated systems and services.

Even though it may take some time, it is worth getting quotes from multiple companies. You can get a free quote from BVR Energy, one of the best solar panel companies. However, we recommend that you also get quotes from other companies so you can compare and find the best deal.

4. Not supervising the installers

When buying a car or a home, you probably do your research and carefully consider your options before making a decision. You should do the same when buying a solar panel system. Avoid installers who only talk to potential customers and don't want to answer your questions.

Visit the installer's website and read the customer testimonials there. Before making a decision, search for the company online and contact a representative. With so many options available, it's important to do your own research before deciding.

5. Lack of awareness regarding Australian consumer protection laws

Consumers have rights under the law. Simply being aware of these protections is enough. For example, if you have solar panels and an inverter, you have a right to the full warranty. Don't be fooled by installers who say you need to service your solar panels once a year. Your warranty is still valid if you follow the manufacturer's and installer's instructions.

Solar panel maintenance is necessary, but not annually or even bi-annually. If you are confident in the quality of your system, it will most likely only need maintenance every five years. There are no ongoing solar panel maintenance costs, so you can keep your warranty. Warranty coverage is automatically provided to customers and is valid for the specified period of time.

6. Incorrect solar rebate calculations

Homeowners know they can get rebates for using solar power to run their homes, but most people don't know exactly how much they can save by investing in solar energy.

Even though rebates can be complex, it's important to understand them and how to calculate your payback. The state government works with the federal government to set the feed-in tariff, which determines how much you'll be paid for the electricity your solar panels generate.

Due to these paybacks, consumers believe they can

Buy a solar panel system that is the right size for your home or business to eliminate your electricity bills. You will be paid for the electricity that your solar panels generate and return to the grid. Some people are confused about these two points, but the benefits of solar energy are only limited by the terms of your electricity bill.
