WHAT IS A STANDARD INSTALLATION?

WHAT WE MEAN BY “PRICING IS BASED ON A STANDARD INSTALLATION”

If every house was the same, quoting for solar products would be simple. However, most people don’t realise the complexities involved in properly quoting a solar installation. Depending on your roof pitch, house orientation, the number of levels on your house, the type of meter box you have and many other variables, your solar installation could cost more. So when you’re looking for a price on solar, remember that the price you’re seeing is most likely a price for a “standard installation” – in other words, a house that has the following characteristics:

  • Tin Roof
  • Single Storey
  • All panels fit on one side of the roof
  • Max roof pitch of 30 degrees
  • DC cable run (ie. from panels to inverter) no greater than 5m
  • AC cable run (ie. from inverter to meter box) no greater than 1m
  • Property location must be within 20 kilometers from the Sun Gods Solar office
  • Complying meter box

So the moral of the story is, if you see a great deal on solar on our website and the quote you receive from us is more expensive that the listed price on our website, it will most likely be because your house doesn’t meet the requirements of a standard installation and therefore more materials and labour are needed to complete the installation.
