How to find the best solar installers in Sydney
To determine the best solar panel installer in Sydney will depend on a range of personal circumstances, which is why it’s best to compare quotes from a range of different companies. While we’ve done our best to provide some key information, it may require some more research on your behalf, but at least most solar installers these days will offer a free consultation or quote.
In Canstar Blue’s latest survey, we uncovered that 88 per cent of customers in New South Wales believed installing solar was a good financial decision. While more than three quarters of respondents stated they researched panels and inverters prior to engaging a solar installer, 44 per cent revealed that they wished they had done more research prior to making a decision. Ultimately, it will come down to a company you or somebody you know trust, which is where recommendations from friends and family can come in handy.
