Commercial facilities are large, complicated properties to do electrical work on – especially when it comes to solar panel installations! There’s a lot to consider, such as roof size, property location, wind patterns, installation angle, power requirements, and much more. You need an electrician who not only specialises in solar power but in commercial solar systems. They will be able to get the job done quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.

Of course, you will want an honest, reliable one. It’s very easy for dishonest solar electricians to scam their customers into paying more or believing that their services are the best of the best. To help you protect yourself, here are some things to look out for during your selection process.


A professional commercial solar installations specialist will never ask you for a large, upfront deposit to begin installations – aside from the costs of the actual panels, of course. They work for an organisation that will have more than enough capital to buy all the supplies needed to start. If your potential contractor is asking for a deposit of 20% of the project price or more, you should look at hiring someone else.


As someone who lacks experience in electrical and solar systems, this one’s important. A truly honest and reliable commercial solar technician will ensure that you know exactly what is involved in the job and why. They will continue to update you and keep you informed to ensure that you’re not left in the dark or feeling confused. This way, they know that there will be no disputes during the job, nor call-backs once it’s complete – and that you’ll likely use them again. However, some scammers use different tactics to get large amounts of money out of you before seemingly disappearing.

If your potential pick refuses to use terminology you can understand, you’re not dumb – they’re deceitful. This is a well-known tactic where they take advantage of technical industry jargon to make a problem or installation seem much more time, labour, and money-intensive than it actually is. Unbeknownst to you, the job at hand is likely run-of-the-mill, yet you will be slapped with a ridiculously expensive bill based on the technician’s fabrications. Make sure that the technician you choose openly communicates with you every step of the way in a language you can easily understand. They should also have no problem explaining it further if you don’t.
