Why trust Mountain Man Electrical with your solar installation?

Since we began serving Townsville homeowners in 2018 we’ve encountered numerous customers frustrated with the performance or ongoing issues with their existing solar panel systems. Many companies that provide solar installation do not provide ongoing maintenance or assistance when problems arise. With the availability of government incentives, many companies offer cheap installations and low-quality solar panels. Significantly, these companies are not required to employ technicians with an electrical licence. As a result, installations may be subpar, and homes can end up with unsafe systems.

Recognising these challenges, we made a decision in recent years to expand our services and become qualified solar panel installers. By doing so, we are better equipped to address the needs of our customers and provide solutions that meet their requirements. As always, we use best industry standard practices during installation, we have a selection of premium products, and we uphold high standards of workmanship.

At Mountain Man Electrical, we prioritise customer satisfaction and aim to deliver reliable solar solutions that stand the test of time. With our expertise and commitment to excellence, you can trust us to handle your solar panel installation needs with professionalism and proficiency.

What are the common headaches that we see Townsville owners experience with their solar panel system?

Incorrect installation  

When designing a custom quote for your home we will ensure you have the correct size of system to meet your needs.

Faulty wiring or isolator switch

Mountain Man Electrical follows best standards and uses quality products to eliminate faulty wiring issues. We use stainless steel cable ties instead of nylon and ensure the wiring from your panels should not sag down on to your hot roof over time.

Switchboard faults and fuses blowing  

Slapping solar panels on a roof without checking your switchboard safety is reckless. Over years, the cycles and ambient temperature cause cables to creep and screw connections to loosen in your switchboard, which can put you at higher risk of electrical house fire.

A reliable solar panel system installer will let you know if you require an upgraded switchboard, an upgrade to the retail electricity meter, and even an upgrade of the mains cabling to Ergon point of supply. We follow the industry best practice and make an assessment of your switchboard prior to installation.

Damaged solar panels 

We offer a system panel system evaluation after 12 months of installation. During this evaulation we will check performance of the inverter, update the software on the inverter, check the solar panels for microcracks, dirt and grime. 

Keeping your solar panels on a regular maintenance schedule will increase the system’s longevity.

Benefits to upgrading your switchboard prior to solar installation

In numerous cases, the installation of solar panels entails more than just incorporating a single circuit breaker. In fact, to optimize the performance of your new system, it’s essential to include a consumption meter (or dynamic meter) and a contactor time clock  for automating your hot water service. Updating the switchboard at the same time is a practical decision. Often, existing installations lack sufficient space to accommodate the necessary equipment without replacing old mechanical meters and consolidating old 2 or 4-pole safety switches into single-pole units, which also enhance redundancy.
