The key difference is that we offer enforceable guarantees. Several installers in Australia offer something called a performance warranty, which means that if your system output is lower than predicted, they will come back and fix it. Virtually all Australian solar installers and solar sales companies, use off-the-shelf ‘Nearmap’ software or Google Maps to identify your property and then add solar panels to it. That is as far as it goes in solar design. Furthermore, you are shown hand drawn diagrams and financial outcomes to demonstrate solar results. This is a terribly flawed process and more often than not the projections turn out to be wrong.
Moreover, most installers don’t install adequate analytics tools to help you monitor your system performance levels. So at the end of the year, when you get a power bill shock, there is limited recourse available.
In contrast, every bidmysolar™ client has their system meticulously designed using our state-of-the-art design software, considering heat irradiance, shading, and orientation amongst other considerations. This allows us to provide highly accurate financial forecasts and offer Australia’s first power bill savings guarantee. Moreover, every client using the bidmysolar™ Platform is provided with an option to include true independent 3rd Party Monitoring, which allows you and our team, 24/7 real-time data access regarding the health and performance of you installed system.
