This story shows why monitoring is so critical, and why you need a solar provider who stays with you, ensuring you receive a whole energy solution, not just panels on a roof. Read an excerpt here:
William Holdsworth's solar panels were on his roof for five years before he realised they were never connected to the grid.
It was 2011 and then aged 75, Mr Holdsworth was looking for a way to reduce his household expenses.
He spent about $3000 on the solar system, but he's yet to see the savings on his electricity bill.
Today, the panels lie dormant on his roof; now redundant due to changes in standards since 2011.
