Considerations when Finding the Perfect Solar Installer

As South African solar power continues to grow, an increasing number of solar power installation companies have begun popping up. As a leading name in solar power EPC ranging from domestic rooftop installations to commercial and industrial solar solutions, we have decided to put together a list of important considerations to keep in mind when searching for the perfect solar power installer.


What types of solar systems do they offer?


If you’re going to be forking out thousands on a solar solution, it’s important to make sure that your installers are using top quality equipment that works well together.

The perfect solar power installer should be able to provide you with an accurate energy estimate for how much your system will produce each year.

Soventix strives to go above and beyond, testing sustainability, economic value as well as ecological value, ensuring that our clients are fully informed along the way


Find out how long they’ve been in the solar installation business


While every “master” had to start out as a “beginner”, when it comes to solar, experience matters!

When someone is attaching heavy, expensive equipment to your roof and connecting it to your electrical system, you most definitely want someone who knows exactly what they’re doing. Asking to view their company credentials will help prevent any possible stress and headaches in the future.

Many solar power installation companies make use of subcontracting for different parts of the project, which can leave you feeling in the dark.

Soventix is proud to have over 15 years of solar experience behind us. We are fully involved with the solar project from inception to completion – and beyond!


Learn what is under warranty and for how long


One of the best ways to compare solar installation companies is by asking them what happens if something goes wrong. Things to consider include:

  • What is covered under product warranty and how long does the coverage last?
  • Who pays for labour and shipping to replace defective components?
  • Is there a warranty on the installation itself?

Discuss the different payment options


There are multiple ways to pay for solar power solutions, but not all companies will offer every option. It is important to discuss payment options upfront so that there isn’t any confusion in the future. This also makes it possible for you to compare payment options with other bids received.

Soventix works closely with financial institutions that specialise in renewable energy. We provide clients with a well-defined financial plan and evaluate your capital needs based on your financial situation. We also endeavour to inform clients about tax breaks and identify possible government grants, supporting you with the application process.
