An installation that is significantly different to that quoted, and not approved, shall entitle you to a full refund. If the installation cannot be completed within the period offered in our quote, and agreed to, then you may cancel and receive a full refund. If we do not receive grid connection approval before installation, and that grid connection is subsequently not received then we may remove the system or offer a full refund.

  7. After the system in installed, you (the customer) are required to contact your energy retailer and advise them you have solar installed. They will then arrange for the meter to be changed or reprogrammed to measure exported power. This is excluded from our installation scope. We will assist in providing any information that your energy retailer may need from you.

  9. You should find out from your energy retailer the Feed In Tariff that they will offer you, and take this into consideration regarding your solar system purchase. It is your responsibility to ensure that your energy retailer is then applying the agreed tariff. Any tariff suggestions we make for modelling of savings are estimates only.

  18. You will assign the STC rights of the system to IQ Solar or its agents to allow the value of this ”rebate” to offset the cost of the system. IQ Solar offers the value of the STCs as a point of sale discount to the purchaser, and we then trade these STCs through a clearing house/broker. Your obligation for the STCs is simply to assign them to IQ Solar or our agent. You are offered a price as per our quote to you, and this amount is taken as a point of sale discount against the full price.

Our performance guarantee, if offered is that the system will produce at least 90% of the intended kWh output outlined in our quote.

  23. None of these clauses remove your rights under Australian consumer law.

If you change your router settings (wifi password) the monitoring will cease to function). We can assist with troubleshooting if needed. If your signal is weak and can’t reach the inverter location, we can suggest some options (repeaters) but that will be at your expense.
  25. Pricing for solar systems is quoted after a deduction for STC’s and assumes STC’s are assigned to IQ Solar or our agent on installation.

  27. Any additional meter box work is a separate charge. If your meter board has an asbestos backing sheet this may require and upgrade. We will make the difference between an estimate and a quote clear. An estimate is an educated guess. A quote is specific and binding. An estimate may change due to unseen factors such as cable sizes previoulsy unknown to us, or asbestos being present.
  28. IQ Solar will endeavour to not break any tiles. If tiles are broken, we can replace them (if you have spares) or repair them. If breakages exceed your spare tiles, we can assist in sourcing new tiles but this is at the owner’s expense. Some tiles such as terracotta will always incur breakages. Many roofs incur no breakages. If in doubt, please ask us.
