Solar Marketplace: What to expect

The solar installation market in Australia is highly fragmented – with more than 6,500 installers and retailers – and the industry is plagued by dodgy operators installing sub-par systems to the detriment of well-meaning Aussies looking to get a better deal on their electricity and reduce their carbon footprint.

Solar installers often use difficult-to-understand electricity jargon and fancy marketing speak when talking about products and process, meaning that you, the consumer, have to be a small-time expert in solar in order to understand it all. There is a need for a trusted source to help consumers through the design, product choice, installation, and management of their solar investment, and Huglo is working tirelessly to make that happen.

At Huglo, we believe an investment in solar and batteries doesn’t end after your purchase. We want to help you maximise your investment. That’s why you have the benefit of our sophisticated electricity comparison service long after the system has been installed – all free when you choose Huglo as your partner.
