4 Mistakes People Make When Buying Solar Systems

When it comes to buying solar systems, there are a few areas that you need to be aware of before you purchase. People make mistakes when purchasing solar systems because they have not done enough research, or they have been misinformed. Here at All Green Environmental Solutions, we can help you from making these kinds of mistakes. We have written this article for you talking about the four most common mishaps people make when buying solar so that you can avoid these issues.

1. Customers Who Accept Everything the Salesperson Says

It would help if you were an informed consumer when it comes to making decisions around a solar system purchase. It’s an expense and commitment, so you want to make sure that you are doing everything correctly. You should always get independent verification with what the salesperson told you. You can always e-mail us at All Green Environmental Solutions for information. Furthermore, you can go to https://www.allgreenenvironmentalsolutions.com.au/solar-deals/  and  https://www.allgreenenvironmentalsolutions.com.au/solar-finance/  on our website to see what we charge and how we can help you with finance.

2. Getting the Wrong Size Solar System Installed

You don’t want to be stuck with the wrong size solar system. You should have to sit down with a provider to discuss this one. They will discuss your energy goals with you. Keep in mind that most people make the mistake of having a solar system that is too small from our experience. Talk with one of our solar experts today, and we will provide you with the right information to make an informed decision.

3. Thinking that Your Home is Too Shady to Consider Panels

You will only lose 10-15% efficiency if you do not have north-facing panels. That really isn’t much of a loss. Also, depending on certain factors, it might be an advantage to have east or west-facing panels. Whatever direction your panels will face, there will be some advantage. Again it’s a good idea to get a solar system expert to consult you on the perfect solution for your home or business.

4. Getting a Bad Solar Panel Deal

Unfortunately, some companies will try to sell you a solar panel system that isn’t really worth what they charge. Unfortunately, some people will charge $15,000 for a $5000 system, but that is exactly what happens at times. All in all, you will need to ensure that you shop around and get an idea of what is out there. In this case, even Google can be your best friend. At All Green Environmental Solutions, we have installed thousands of solar system around the Central Coast, Sydney and Newcastle areas of NSW and would be happy to provide you with a quote on a new system and to discuss your options.

Talk to us today, and the issues above we have mentioned won’t be an issue. We are trusted Australian Solar Installers and look forward to discussing how to make your home or business greener with solar.

    5 star review  All Green Environmental Solutions this week installed a system for us in Northbridge NSW - 8Kw system with 26 Jinko panels and Enphase microinverters. It was the first company I contacted and after meeting with Gary Adair on site having already read reviews of the company, I decided not to bother with competitive quotes. And I wasn't disappointed. The 3 man team led by Bryce turned up as promised at 9am last Tuesday and by 4pm that day we were up and running. Company staff have been both efficient and courteous. Whilst the price I paid is definitely not the cheapest I could have obtained, the professionalism of the company and the confidence that engenders more than makes up for it. I would wholeheartedly recommend All Green Environmental Solutions to anyone considering a solar system.

  • 5 star review  I don't normally write reviews but decided to do it for All Green as I had a great experience and smooth transaction with them. Joe on the sales end was really great with understanding the needs and providing analysis for couple of different scenarios. He didn't try to push me to sell the biggest system and provided the optimum one that'd suite my need. It took a while to get it installed, but Wayne and the crew was great on the day. They had all the equipment and didn't even have to come inside the house. They did all the work from outside which was great as I was working from home that day. The job was neat and I didn't have to a tidy up after they've left. Emma and Kylie in the office were great to deal with as well. The system is working like a charm and automatically shut down safely when there was planned maintenance in the electricity network. Thanks guys, couldn't have been a smoother transaction. I'll be recommending you to everyone who's considering solar

    5 star review  Excellent workmanship. I cannot speak more highly of their installers. I only wish other tradies were as prompt, polite, clean, and showed the same attention to detail.

  • 5 star review  Fantastic friendly service, very professional installers. Pricing was really good and they explained everything in simple terms that I could understand. I would have no hesitation recommending them. Even though they were from the central coast they were happy to come to Sydney and were always on time. It’s awesome dealing with companies like this. Thanks all green

  • 5 star review  May I thank the installer Dave who came around today to troubleshoot and fix my network connectivity with the Enphase envoy. He went to great trouble to hook it up via ethernet so it’s much more reliable and I’m thrilled about that. This is the sort of excellent post-install service you want but don't always get. Recommend.

    5 star review  Excellent experience with All Green getting our solar panels fitted. Joel and the boys arrived on time and had the job finished in about 4 hours. The solar panels have been producing heaps of power since installation and we have not used any electricity in that time.

  • 5 star review  From the very start, Joe was competitive, and engaging with the quote.Joe provided a lot of background links to help in the education process, and help determine the right system for our house based on our budget. Then when it came to the install, Bryce and his team were here promptly. They were very engaging, and extremely efficient - done in 4hrs. Enjoying monitoring production and consumption, and looking forward to low energy bills and doing our little part for the environment. Thanks to All Green Environmental Solutions.

  • 5 star review  All green environmental solutions installed a large solar system and Tesla battery at my elderly neighbours house (who I was assisting) on the 20th of August, 2020. The installation team came early in the morning, and after consulting with us about what they were going to do, they got to work. The whole process took less than a day, and the men were very efficient and courteous. At the end of the day, the system was tested and up and running, and they left the worksite tidy. Would highly recommend the company if you are thinking of putting in a system. Cheers, Phillip and Dennis. 😊😸

    5 star review  I had an issue with my Enphase system which was installed by another local company who went bankrupt, effectively voiding my labour warranty for good. All Green Environmental Solutions weren't obliged to assist me, being very busy with their own clients, but they did !. Their response was prompt and professional throughout. If you are looking to install solar, I am sure you will be safe in the long term and well looked after with this company. Thanks again .

    5 star review  I was referred to All Green Environmental Solutions by a friend and I am so glad I listened. The job entailed installing Enphase solar panel system and a Tesla Powerwall 2 at my house. This was done efficiently with the work being completed on the day of installation with no issues. They setup the system so that I can monitor it on my phone, answered all questions I had and were professional throughout. I highly recommend them

  • 5 star review  Great company to deal with. Priced competively. Install done neatly and on time. Always good to support some locals. Well done to Scott, Bryce and the team.

    5 star review  Great advice and service and I don't regret selecting them. They are not a pushy solar marketing outfit. I have recommended them to friends who are looking for solar. They were very patient and helpful while I watched shading issues during different times of the day in the weeks before I made a decision. My observations just confirmed what they had proposed. I was very happy with the installation process. What they said I could expect to be generated on my site and position is on target with what is actually happening.

    5 star review  A highly professional experience from start to finish. The sales team provided all the information we needed in an easy to understand format with very competitive pricing. Once we decided to go ahead with the purchase things moved along quickly and within a short time the installation crew arrived. The crew were very helpful and friendly, explaining all the steps and downtime was kept to a very minimum amount of time. No more than 15 minutes or so. The monitoring software was installed and explained in detail and the empty boxes, etc was cleaned away. A reassuring aspect of the monitoring software is that in the event of a problem All Green will contact me to let me know what will be done and when, not the other way around as is usually the case. Top marks on all aspects of the deal from start to finish. Well done. I would recommend All Green in an instant.
