Typical wait time for new setup.

    A family member has been told the earliest they can get panels is March. Is this the same across the board? They are hesitant to commit but I’m not convinced they will secure an installation any earlier.

    Depends on the installer and their current waiting list, if it's any use there will be very little generated over the next couple of months, mid-March is when it starts to kick in

    Depending on the price/installation config of course, and I know it's a long time 6 months, but don't forget there really isn't a HUGE disadvantage in missing out on the winter generation. Forget about November, December and Jan. While you'll get something from the panels, it's usually like 10-20% of your household needs. I'd say to your sibling to go for it.....price/config being good of coruse.

    Can companies honour the price in 6 months?

    The way inflation is going 6 months is a lot of time!

    companies ordering/stockpiling containers of panels should be reasonably placed to honour the quotes.

    Different times at the moment, but I placed my order at the end Aug/stat of Sept last year and wasn't installed until early Jan and they honoured it without any attempts to renegotiate.

    If you are paying a deposit now, and have everything in writing, then it should be clear to all parties. No different than ordering something online that'll take weeks to arrive, the price is agreed at the time the order is placed, unless they explicitly state otherwise. As there are plenty of cowboys out there looking to cream as much as possible off an install, it'd be no harm to ask them that question and get it in writing.

    that's on the company and their quotation process. if they state an itemized install at specific prices with no small print regarding inflation review etc, and that is what both parties agree to, then sin é. but get everything in writing\email obviously.
