When purchasing solar you want to choose the right system the first time to avoid costly upgrades later. An important consideration when purchasing solar is: Can the system be upsized in the future? Our knowledgeable staff will help make choosing the right system easy.
Beware of inflated performance claims. Low quality components may perform well in test conditions, but not in practical application. Energy Matters works with conservative figures when estimating performance and strives to perform our own checks on manufacturer claims.
Important information data such as peak and average daily output, expected annual output, as well as CO2 emissions saved are outlined clearly on our quotation.
Energy Matters only uses components with Australian certifications; we certainly donít use our customers as test cases for component companies. In the past there have been instances where companies have used components that are not yet certified in Australia. If you receive uncertified products you may not be able to claim government rebates. If you are not sure just ask.
Itís important to know that if you have a warranty claim, that the claim will be valid and dealt with promptly. A 25 year warranty seems reassuring but you need to be confident that the manufacturer will (A) be in operation in 25 years and (B) if not, uphold its warranty requirements.
Energy Matters offers leading brands with full genuine manufacturer warranties, we are also a warranty agent for all components in our systems, meaning fast turnaround times on warranty issues with the full backing of the component manufacturer. We strive to resolve issues the first time.
Rebates, feed in tariffs and incentives are often complex and confusing. The team at Energy Matters breaks this down into simple terms for you. We pride ourselves on having the most up to date information on rebates and incentives available on the web 24 hours a day. We advocate for government policy that will support not only our business, but the renewable energy sector and our local, national and global communities.
The industry standard is 10%, however some providers ask for as much as an 80% deposit and this can be risky if the situation arises where you need to get your deposit back. Energy Matters is an established solar company and a name you can trust, we require just a 10% deposit with balance payable when your system is installed.
The global solar market is rapidly expanding making panels and inverters often in short supply. To help keep our installation lead times to a minimum, Energy Matters has developed strong relationships with leading manufactures to ensure supply is consistent.
In most instances Energy Matters can install your system within 4 - 8 weeks of your order confirmation. Please make sure when considering solar providers that companies are not substituting inferior materials to meet installation timelines.
