Be­ware bulk buy so­lar sem­i­nars, are they all they are cracked up to be?

The Northern Star - - NEWS -

Re­cently there has been an in­crease in some so­lar com­pa­nies or or­gan­i­sa­tions op­er­at­ing in­for­ma­tion ses­sions with the lure of bulk buy so­lar dis­counts in your area.

Th­ese of­ten-com­mis­sioned sellers give the re­new­able en­ergy in­dus­try a bad rep­u­ta­tion, at times em­ploy­ing un­scrupu­lous sell­ing tac­tics, and we for one won’t stand for it.

At SAE Group we be­lieve knowl­edge is power, and we pride our­selves on de­liv­er­ing ex­pert ad­vice so that our cus­tomers can make an in­formed de­ci­sion when it comes to choos­ing an en­ergy so­lu­tion. We also un­der­stand from years of ex­pe­ri­ence, that no two homes are the same, so find­ing the right so­lar so­lu­tion for you and your home will not be the same as your neigh­bour.

If you’re con­sid­er­ing so­lar, you’ll also know it’s a mine­field out there, so to help you nav­i­gate your way to the right so­lu­tion for you, we have to put to­gether a few points that will help you feel con­fi­dent you are mak­ing the right de­ci­sion.

1. Stay calm and get a sec­ond pro­posal. Some con­sumers have re­cently re­ported they have been sold so­lar sys­tems on the prom­ise they have se­cured a dis­counted price, only to find out after that they have paid much more than the sys­tem is worth. In some cases, con­sumers have re­ported pay­ing thou­sands more for in­fe­rior prod­ucts. Don’t be pushed into sign­ing on the spot. In­vest­ing in so­lar is an in­vest­ment in your fu­ture, and you need to be sure you are not pay­ing through the nose for an in­fe­rior sys­tem that might not suit your en­ergy needs.

2. Read be­tween the lines. Look for the gaps in the sleek sales pitch. Who can you call when the sales­per­son sails off into the sun­set? Who can you con­tact should some­thing go wrong with your sys­tem? Where is the com­pany based? Who will in­stall your sys­tem? Are they lo­cal? Are they Master Elec­tri­cians? It may feel like you’re run­ning the Span­ish In­qui­si­tion, but re­mem­ber, knowl­edge is power and you will quickly pick the gen­uine ex­perts from the stam­mer­ing sales­men. At SAE Group, we are your lo­cal ex­pert in re­new­able en­ergy so­lu­tions, ser­vic­ing your area since 2010. We will be here should you ever need us, in years to come. Did you know we are also re­spon­si­ble for large scale de­sign and in­stal­la­tion of un­der­ground and over­head power lines among other things? Yep, we are busy fu­ture proof­ing the en­ergy needs of your com­mu­nity as well.

If you’re ready to take con­trol of your en­ergy fu­ture, and you’re look­ing for hon­est, trust­wor­thy ad­vice from your lo­cal en­ergy con­trac­tor, call us today on 1300 18 20 50 for a chat and a tai­lored so­lu­tion that’s de­signed to en­hance your life­style today and well into the fu­ture.
