Interested in rooftop solar? These questions will help you choose a reliable solar retailer.
Australia may lead the world in the uptake of domestic rooftop solar, with an estimated one in four homes equipped with PV panels, but authorities fear as many as 400,000 installations could be sub-standard and that 40,000-plus systems may be unsafe.
