Should I buy a second-hand solar system?

- It is recommended not to buy a used solar system.
- The only way it would make sense to use second hand solar panels is if you were paid to.  Because the “solar rebate1” which lowers the cost of rooftop solar by providing Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) only applies to new panels. Using second-hand components will add thousands of dollars to the cost of rooftop solar.
