The residential solar industry in Australia is large and growing. With over three million solar panel systems now installed in Australian homes, you might believe that solar installation is a routine and quality-assured job.
However, regulatory bodies receive hundreds of yearly complaints about faulty or underperforming installations.
The popularity of solar panels has increased complaints about solar companies. The Clean Energy Regulator has also conducted inspections of residential solar installations, which revealed that many installations need to be performed or correctly configured.
So how do you ensure a proper residential solar panel installation? The installation process for a solar panel system in Australia involves several steps to guarantee an appropriate setup and compliance with regulations.
