On Friday got solar panels installed. Original quote said would get 20 solar panels; Q Cells Q.PEAK DUO-G5+ 330.
Installation finished but could not install smart meter due to the switch board needing to be modified, which the installers said would come back and do it later. They said they will send me a revised quote to take out the smart meter ($300 aprrox) and we could sort it out later.
Looking at the revised quote it was 4 dollars difference and there were 19 solar panels; Q-Cells Q.Peak DUO-G6 350.
So looks like they did a switcharoo without telling me and seeing if that would slide under the radar?
Comparing data sheets I think they placed an inferior product. Biggest difference seems to be the warranty period. 25 years down to 12 years.
That is the main issue but also had other annoyances such as the configuration of the panels differed from original quote too. I will draw this with lines and a dash.
8 and then 1 straggler
It is aesthetically displeasing and also not as efficient with the way shade moves. But like probably marginally less efficient so can probably get over that part.
I am going to call and ask for an explanation but I am not sure how to proceed. I am not happy that I did not get the panels that I wanted.
Thanks for reading
