Buying Solar In 2022: Everything You Need To Know

Get up to speed on everything you need to know about buying solar panels for your home in 2022 in this updated video guide from SolarQuotes Founder Finn Peacock.

The video is based on the text version of Finn’s regularly updated original Solar 101 buyers guide that has been viewed more than a million times. It provides Australian buyers with all the knowledge they need to buy a good quality solar power system with confidence – and at the right price.

The following is what’s covered in the video and guide. Each of the links below will take you to the specific section of the text version. Alternatively, move your mouse over the progress bar in the video above to see the chapters if there’s a segment you’re particularly interested in – but it’s a good idea to read/view from start to finish.

If after having digested the information you’re ready to get quotes from carefully pre-vetted installers Finn trusts – or if you’re already set on installing panels – you can do so here:

Last year, Finn wrote a prequel and sequel to the original guide:

  • Understanding Solar: The basics of home solar power and more detail on each of the main components making up a system.
  • Owning Solar: The panels are on your roof and the installers have left. What should you do next besides waiting for your much lower electricity bills to roll in?

Finn’s also published a comprehensive 3-part guide to solar batteries:
