How much does it cost?
Several factors can affect the cost of installing a solar power system. First and foremost, the size and quantity panels required. Even considering different roof setups may affect actual solar installation time, for instance, a terracotta tile roof may take longer, we maintain a standard pricing model based on the size and quantity of panels installed.
If you are happy for us to proceed, we will ask you for a 10% deposit. We typically set up the project, take care of the paperwork, and get your system up and running within 2 to 3 weeks from receipt of payment. We arrange the installation for a day that suits you
Standard Pricing Model
We maintain a standard pricing model to keep things simple for the you and for ourselves. Therefore, the cost of your solar installation will be directly proportional to the size and quantity of panels installed, period.

What we need from You
We require an adult to be present at the start of the solar installation process, as we will be needing full access to the circuitry and the roof, and to confirm any final details before commencing work. During the summer months, you can expect an early morning appointment (around 7 am) so as not to keep you from your daily engagements.
Most solar installations require about 5 to 7 hours, and by lunchtime, our work will be done. This time frame includes the whole setup, including internet connection, and battery tests, to ensure everything is in full order.
Your solar installation will be carried out by three GoSolar technicians. We do not use third-party contractors. Our qualified technicians will professionally install your Solar energy system and only leave after confirming that the system is 100% on.
Within a few hours of our solar installation, you will receive an activation link granting you full access to your consumption data. We will provide a user’s manual and training materials for reading your data. By mid-afternoon, you will have a clear overview of your system, in full working order, and already getting you results.

After your Solar Energy System is installed
You will be invoiced only once the setup is 100% functional, and we are all happy with the outcome. The preferred method of payment is direct deposit; however, we also accept credit card and cash. Naturally, we will make sure to follow up with you in short order to check that you’re happy with your installation or have any feedback for us. We will, of course, be glad to receive any referrals you may have. After that, every five years, we will send you a reminder to clean your solar panels which is a service we also offer.
12 Month Warranty
In addition to the generous manufacturers warranty on the products we use, we offer a 12-month warranty period for the installation, i.e. if you were to find a leak through the roof due to our work, we would be happy to take care of that.
If your energy requirements increase and you decide you need an upgrade its easily taken care of. Thanks to the modular micro-inverter system we use, the energy produced by the solar panels is converted to household energy at one centralised point. This means that increasing production is as easy as installing and connecting new solar panels, without the need for any re-fitting or additional work.
