Can I buy panels and inverters direct from a supplier and install the solar system myself?
As solar systems deal with live electricity and high voltage the installation of solar systems needs to be left to the professionals. In order to install solar power systems the tradesmen need to have qualification in solar power system design and solar installation. Issues of wind loading, voltage compatibility between panel configuration and solar inverter etc are all areas for professionals.
Also in order to receive the government rebate for residential systems, the system must have been installed by a professional accredited installer. Live electricity should always only be installed by licensed tradesmen.
