Our People.

The Sparky Solar Solution

 
The issue with solar sales companies.

 

Many people in the market for solar choose to buy from a solar sales company. The decision to buy is often based on price. The sales company subcontracts the installation to a third party  who install the panels.

 

Often, the system is an off-the-shelf solution and the customer is left disappointed with the performance and quality of their investment. 

 

After sales support can be non-existent as the sales company does not want to take responsibility for any issues. Blame is passed on to the installer, who directs all queries back to the sales company. The customer is stuck in the middle and needs to outsource another electrician to service their system.

 

Why is this the case?

Typically, sales companies promote and advertise their offerings based on price. They have salespeople paid on commissions, hence the pressure to buy now!

The sales companies provide the panels, inverter, racking and DC isolators in most cases. The installer only provides the cabling and labour to complete the job, often at very lean rates. Why would they provide any after sales back up? The installer has only put in what the sales company provided and in many cases the product is the cheapest they could get. This can lead to issues.

The reason for this model?

Sales companies are geared to buy the panels, inverters, etc. from wholesalers and importers, often on credit. They also claim back all the Government subsidies and arrange finance for the purchase, often using the marketing tag line “no interest ever”. Installers often work from their vans with very little overheads and very small profit margins.

 

Sounds like a great business model, if you are the sales company.

 

So why do so many sales companies go broke? Leaving Customers with no warranties and suppliers and installers out of pocket thousands of dollars due to unpaid accounts?

Poor financial management and trying to grow too big too quick has been the downfall for most. Every sales company wants to be the biggest in Australia. So they open offices in every state. They employ more lead generators and staff, lease more offices and warehouses and before you know it they have folded.
