EnviroGroup offers a limited installation services warranty for any defects in the work carried out by its qualified installers when installing a solar system (“workmanship warranty”).
This warranty applies to the system specified in the contract of works, at the address specified in the contract of works.
EnviroGroup warrants that the installer of the System will be suitably qualified and experienced; will be duly licensed and/or registered; will be accredited for installation of the System/s with the CEC (Clean Energy Council) and/or any other relevant body.
The Company reserves the right to charge a fee (“Call Out Fee”) payable by the Customer should the Company send a representative to the site of installation in response to a perceived failure of the System, or fault in workmanship, where said fault is not found to be caused by a fault or defect in the materials and/or workmanship supplied by the Company.
The workmanship warranty covers any defects that arise from the workmanship in installing your solar panels and solar inverter at the premises specified in the solar system installation Contract.
It does not cover the system or any of its components, including the performance of the panels or the inverter (which may be covered by separate manufacturer warranties and under law).
- For all work except the installation of a switchboard, the workmanship warranty period is 10 years from the date of completion of the installation for residential properties.
