5 Things You Need To Know Before Going Solar

Updated: Jun 11, 2019

What do you think is the biggest obstacle for a project being completed on time and on budget?

It is outsourcing.

Many solar companies are project and sales managers. They don't train and employ their own electricians. They outsource install labour to one company, the engineering to another company and the electrical portion to yet another.

How does this create a problem for you?

This ultimately puts the return of your investment at risk and makes your install dependent on the availability of subcontractors.

So what are the advantages for you to choose a complete solar solution?

1. Fixing Issues

Should there be system performance issues, outsourcing companies are pointing the finger at each other, leaving you with system performance issues unresolved. With Econnect Solar it’s always just one phone call.

2. Install Coordination

The implementation of a solar system is critical to maximising your return. It requires a united approach. All the different phases must be coordinated with the various areas involved. At Econnect Solar we maintain continuity throughout the whole installation process. This ensures that you receive the highest quality.

3. Taking Responsibility

Often the contractor is paid per job (not per hour) so they may cut corners and rush complex or tricky jobs to maintain profitability. At Econnect Solar our electricians maintain a high standard of workmanship ensured by our continuous training and strict quality control.

4. Promises of Sales Managers

We have seen cases where sales staff quoted cheap solar prices without considering (or understanding) the technical issues for a roof just to get the sale. When the solar installers arrived to do the job, they realised the promise of the sales staff was unrealistic. Econnect Solar is owned and operated by electricians. This ensures that we only make promises we can keep.

5. Point of Contact

If the company operates under one umbrella you deal with only one point of contact throughout the whole process. This ensures a seamless transition to solar. At Econnect Solar you have only one number to call. It's all Econnect Solar.
