As you’ll read in our fact-packed explainer, it makes perfect sense to install solar power on your rural property – especially in Central Queensland and Northern New South Wales where there’s an average of eight hours a day of untapped energy supplied free from the sun. The trouble is there aren’t as many solar companies out west as there are in the cities and major regional centres, so there are less to choose from. And the last thing you want to do is choose a solar company because they were available, not but because they were good, and more importantly, trustworthy.
My Home Improvements are very good at installing solar power stations – it’s been a core part of our business for almost 20 years – and we have an edge over our competitors when it comes to rural properties, because we give property owners what they want:
All solar panel systems are NOT the same. Cheap solar panels are cheap for a reason; they can contain poor quality silicone and silicone blends that can fatigue, crack and lose their efficiency. In fact, we’ve seen poor-quality solar panels that have lost between 30-40% of their efficiency in just 4-5 years. That’s a huge waste of money, because quality solar panels should last up to thirty years. The solar panel power system inverters also need to be good quality. Look for technologically-advanced brands that are engineered with full capacity in mind – that way you know that they will work efficiently, especially at start-up when maximum power is called for.
Budget solar systems need to cut corners somewhere; if it isn’t the components, it’s probably the installation. My Home Improvements are extremely experienced and go to great lengths to ensure that our solar panel systems are installed properly. The fact that we have 20 years of expertise as roofing contractors and are fully-licensed builders gives us a real edge over other solar companies – we guarantee there will be no issues whatsoever.
