Choose the Right Solar Energy Company
When you’re choosing a solar energy company, ensure that they are Clean Energy Council (CEC) approved, and hold an unrestricted Class A Electrical License registered with Energy Safe Victoria. Ensure the retailer you’re buying from is also CEC approved, as there are scammers targeting homeowners. It’s crucial that you know you can trust the solar company you choose.
