Why Specialized Solar was selected

Specialized Solar & Electrical was selected as the supplier for this program through a competitive tendering process which evaluated quality, service and price.

We found that Specialized Solar was the obvious first choice Solar Retailer for Brimbank Community Solar. Quality is so important when it comes to solar, that’s quality of component, quality of installation and quality of customer service. We’re confident that Specialized Solar provides top-notch quality on all counts, combined with pricing that represents good value for money.
