Some solar companies offer their customers a guarantee on their installers’ performance, however, the installation of solar panels is a largely unregulated business, as many people rushed to have them installed when the government was offering rebates.  Therefore, it is important to find a reputable installer.

Under the Building Work Contractors Act, the installation of solar panels (at a residential home) is considered to be domestic building work. That means it is covered by the Statutory Warranties which are imposed by that Act, meaning that every solar panel installation carries the warranties that:
a. the solar panels installation will be performed in a proper manner to accepted trade standards and in accordance with the plans and specifications agreed to by the parties;
b. all materials to be supplied by the contractor for use in the solar panel array (including the panels themselves) will be good and proper;
c. the installation of the solar panels will be performed in accordance with all statutory requirements;
d. if the contract does not stipulate a period within which the installation of the solar panels must be completed, then a warranty that it will be performed with reasonable diligence.
