What To Look For In Your Solar Panel Quotes

When you decide to make the switch from mains supply energy to solar, it won’t be long before you see the financial  benefits. But before that day comes, you’ll need to start looking for solar quotes. Comparing the prices of various quotes works to your advantage as it gives you a better chance of getting more for your money. Before you start shopping around, you need to know what to look for in a quote.

What solar quotes should include

Your solar quotes should include the cost of your panels and any costs associated with installing them. If you’re planning to use battery storage, you’ll need to request a separate quote for that.

When providing you with a quote, the company you use should also highlight any warranties and guarantees. Sometimes those warranties aren’t provided by the company itself. They’re determined by the panel manufacturer.

What solar panel quotes don’t include

Although your solar panel quotes will include the cost of the system and installing it, they probably won’t include servicing. Solar panel servicing is necessary to ensure your inverter is working correctly. It’s a good idea to request servicing every year as it gives you the chance to identify potential problems and address them before they escalate.

Your quote also won’t include cleaning. Cleaning is necessary to remove the layers of dust that could limit the amount of sun that makes its way through to your panels to produce energy. Although this is a service that you’ll need to pay for separately, it does make your system more effective.

Ways to scrutinize quotes

As with any other service, it’s wise to be wary of quotes that seem too good to be true. Quotes that appear overly cheap        are probably only achievable because the company providing them is cutting corners. Or, it may be that there are hidden extras you’ll be lumbered with to make the installation a success.

After receiving a solar quote, always make sure you read the contract that comes with it thoroughly. Don’t be afraid to     seek clarification for anything you don’t understand. It’s a product you’ll be living with for decades to come, so you need   to make sure you’re getting what you expect.

Make sure the quote is thorough

Whether you need a residential solar system or a commercial one, you need to ensure the quote is thorough. Although you may see rough estimates online for houses with a certain number of bedrooms, such quotes aren’t as accurate as you need them to be. In reality, a lot more goes into determining the price of your solar system.

The company providing your quote should consider your energy usage, the number of people living in your household, and factors such as whether you work from home. The more detail they get, the higher the chance of them providing an  accurate quote.
