Hi El-Gaucho

Where abouts are you based? The area you are in makes a difference to rebates you receive (and also currency you are talking about).

What is the brand of the panels quoted?

Thanks
Marty

It does seem quite cheap. Solax and Renesola are well known brands, but on the value side of the spectrum. Arise seems to have a number of positive reviews https://www.productreview.com.au/p/arise-solar.html, although some recent negative ones.

My concern with cheap quotes is less about the main products (panels, batteries, inverters), and more about the installation. When you put pressure on installers to do jobs at a low price, you may risk lower quality installs using lower quality framing and electrical equipment. I’m not saying this is the case here, but something to consider.

Worth considering a more expensive quote, especially if you are dealing directly with installer who is doing the work in my opinion.

Hey there Gaucho,
