Duncan Handley had been exploring the idea of installing a large solar system with batteries at his home in rural NSW near Goulburn when he decided to seek the ATA’s advice.
He jumped on the computer and went to the ATA’s free online solar advice service, which gave him the start he needed with options of different size solar and battery systems and estimates of bill reductions and payback times.
Then he took advantage of a one-hour paid energy consultation with ATA energy analyst Andrew Reddaway for a more thorough and detailed analysis.
“There is a lot of information online but it really isn’t clear who can be trusted, so the ATA was a great option for us,” Duncan says.
“It was super helpful! I now feel confident to look for local installers, understanding much better what I am look for … and what I am not.”
