Counterfeit or fake panels scam
In the past, when branded solar panels started to fail on the roof after a few years of installation, the real manufacturer got to know about the fake products being sold under their name.
We all know, just like fake handbags, fake solar panels are made in the industry. There are industries overseas that label the fake panels with the brand names of your choice. These fake panels are sold at low prices and purchased by unsuspecting customers.
The government has taken an innovative solution. It is known as the Solar panel validation initiative. As we know, the panels which are imported into Australia have unique serial Numbers. It’s a smart way to ensure that the genuine solar panels are mounted across Australia. The serial numbers are validated during the rebate registration process.
