Our Services

What we do

Rated Solar Installer is a new and unique rating program for the solar PV industry. This online platform enables customers to find the highest quality products and installers. The site is designed to give customers confidence in their selection and provides them with the opportunity to rate their installer. 

In order to join the site and become a Rated Solar Installer, you will need to complete an application form, complete an online installer assessment form and provide all information requested by us. We will use the information in accordance with our Privacy Policy and you agree that we may also use third party referencing agencies for the purposes of verifying such information. We shall, in our sole discretion, decide whether or not your application is accepted.

Once a user has posted a job on the site, the user will be forwarded to a list of registered Rated Solar Installers, which includes you. The user then can choose up to three registered Rated Solar Installers, which may include you.

The user enquiry will then be forwarded to the chosen registered Rated Solar Installers.

You will then be able to submit quotations through the site that will be passed on to the user who submitted the original post.

Once the quotations have been received, the user will then get in touch with their preferred registered Rated Solar Installer.

Following completion of an installation, we will publish your feedback on our site, which will be made available to future users.

We do not moderate the information provided by users in relation to each job posted on the site and therefore we do not accept any responsibility for any errors or omissions.
