The driving force behind solar energy today is it competitiveness. That is, the ability to save consumers environmentally and financially. These days plummeting prices of systems many solar businesses began to place more emphasis on price rather than quality.
No doubt the reduction in the cost of the systems have resulted in growth. However, many are now paying the price for substandard panels. Unlike other countries in the world, Australia is the country with the lowest costs for solar. This is due to the compromising of quality for cost.
Finance has helped other countries by with the enforcement of due diligence on supply chain partners. The fact is that finance companies look for solar retailers that understand the market, offer sophistication and demonstrates safety compliance and comprehensive business practices. This reduces financial risks for these companies. This is why finance is driving structural change in the solar business. Solar retailers who successfully adapt to the requirements ultimately benefit in the long term.
