While we are all doing the right thing to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 Virus,
we have been informed that under stage 4 restrictions we cannot install PV solar panels or batteries to residential properties unless fully unoccupied.
At this stage we will not be permitted to install any PV solar panels or batteries within the stage 4 restriction zone of Metropolitan Melbourne until Sunday the 13th of September. Unless the installation is commercial, or the residential installation is a new build and/or fully vacated. We will keep you updated on any information we receive from the Victorian Government.
However, if you live outside the Metropolitan Melbourne stage 4 zone and live within the stage 3 zone, then these restrictions do not apply and you can still get PV solar panels and batteries installed on your residential property.
As we get closer to the 13th of September we will provide you with more updates in relation to any changing restrictions. For more information, you can visit the Solar Victoria website or view their latest statement below.
Many thanks and stay well,
The Sahara Solar Team.
UPDATE (8 August 2020, 7:00pm):
We have received further guidance on the operation of solar businesses under Stage 4 restrictions.
Solar panels cannot be installed on residential properties under Stage 4 restrictions. However critical repairs can be made where required in an emergency or for safety reasons.
Solar panels can be installed at construction sites, including a residential renovation where the home is fully vacated, provided specialist contractors adhere to the worksite’s COVIDSafe Plan and are included in the daily workforce caps.
More detail is now available on the Business Victroia website.

In other word’s you’ll pay less for the best. That means your return on investment will be maximised and your headaches kept to a minimum.
Our system designers are tertiary qualified and pride themselves in thinking outside the box to offer a tailored solution for

Our installers are also quite simply among the best in the industry. The quality of their work is excellent, they are friendly, dedicated and professional and they will make that extra effort when required to ensure you are getting the best installation possible. Oh and they’ll take all the rubbish away with them too.
And once your system is installed we will not forget you. We urge you to let us know how you rated your experience. We genuinely want to hear about how your system is working for you and if you have any issues we want to make sure they are fixed ASAP.
