Wind turbines, solar panels, home battery storage - if it's discussion about renewable energy you're after, you'll find it here.
I have spent over $12,000 to install a huge 10.08kW Solar system and are currently paying it off. The install was 31 October and after just two weeks I was requested by AGL to switch it off with a promise that I will be compensated until the isolators have been replaced.
It is now 7 weeks later:
I stand ready to receive an electrician to fix this, but since the isolators are in the garage, I need to provide access to the property. This is not acceptable and I have been advised it will take another 5 weeks to fix? Really? This will not happen when i buy anything else like a brand new car or home or furniture - why is this acceptable for a brand new solar system?
