NOT INCLUDED

Installation Not Included - If Professional Installation required please include profession installation (link) as additional purchase. 

Concierge service not included.  Matter will onboard tenant and property but will not facilitate the persuading or signing up of a tenant or converse with your property manager. You are responsible for ensuring the tenant agrees. 

When an investment property doesn't have solar - buying solar is hard for people who never have done this before. So, we take the pain by providing a concierge service to assist the Landlord in not just buying solar but ensuring that the 'Solar for Rentals' Solution works providing the best value. This minimises the technical issues and risks for the landlord while increasing the cash flow to the landlord. It also minimises the time a landlord needs to spend on doing this. Learn more.

WHY BUY THIS

  1. You already have Solar installed on the property
  2. You prefer to buy Solar yourself - you are confident that you can do this and it makes sense for you (you have a mate in the industry, or know someone who can help you)
  3. You are technical geek who likes to DIY
  4. You are an Solar Retailer or Solar Installer and wants to sell a 'Solar for Rentals' to a property investor
  5. You are a builder who has a great relationship with a Solar provider who looks after you

If you are unsure or want to understand more please contact us at Matter 

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

The service activation must occur within 6 months of purchase.

Where micro-inverters are used at a site the solar power AC circuit is monitored. For single phase Solar Systems it is assumed that there is a single AC solar power circuit. If this is not the case please contact Matter multiple AC power circuits can be supported by having extra ENERGYsensors or power meters.
