Solar Choice’s new Solar Quote Comparisons: Benefits to customers

Solar Choice, Australia’s free solar energy installation brokering and advice service, has developed a new format for its popular Solar Quote Comparisons. The new system will make solar photovoltaic (PV) system shopping even easier for Solar Choice’s residential customers, whilst also giving them immediate access to the offerings of the full range of solar installers who service their area. 

Solar Choice Solar Quote Comparisons: Before

Since 2008 Solar Choice has been bringing transparency to Australia’s solar market by generating free, impartial, informative comparisons of solar quotes from solar installation companies across the country. This service always has been and will be 100% cost-free to Solar Choice customers. Previously, when a customer would request a Solar Quote Comparison, they would automatically receive an email with links to files detailing the offerings of up to 7 solar installers who operate in their region for solar system sizes ranging from 1.5 kilowatts (kW) to 5kW. These Solar Quote Comparisons contained installer names & details, the names & country of origin of the components to be used, plus all details of system pricing–including the final total, the Solar Choice discount, plus any extra fees that might apply. Seeing these offerings side-by-side in one document made comparing installers quick and simple. Our Solar Quote Comparisons have accordingly proved enormously popular–with over 105,000 Australian households having now used our service.

How have our Solar Quote Comparisons improved?

Solar Choice is constantly working to improve the customer experience. The most recent update of our system is a significant one, giving our customers an even greater selection of installers than before, as well as an increased level of control over which installers they receive contact from. Instead of up to 7 installers, customers will now receive in their email inbox a Solar Quote Comparison detailing the offerings of 3 randomly selected installers to get an idea of what is available in their area. They will also be able to see the offerings–but not the names–of the other installers who also service their area. If they see something that they like, they may elect to receive contact from one, several or all of these installation companies–100% free of charge. Furthermore, Solar Choice’s team of solar PV installation brokers will be on hand at all times to give friendly, impartial advice if customers should have any questions about the new system, Solar Choice’s role in the process, or solar power in general.

The 4 things to know about the new Solar Choice system

So, to sum up what the recent changes mean for our customers in 4 points:

1.) Customers still get a free, instant look at the solar market in their area, automatically receiving a Solar Quote Comparison with the offerings of 3 installers as soon as they fill out the form on our website.

2.) Customers now have the option to choose which installers they receive contact from; other installer offerings will be clearly on display alongside the randomly selected 3.

3.) Customers will still have access to the friendly, impartial advice that the Solar Choice brokering team have always offered.

4.) All of the above services are still 100% free to our customers.
