Our number one priority is the health and safety of our people, our partners and our community. Since installing solar panels or battery storage does not require our suppliers to be in close physical contact with anyone – our suppliers are still installing. They are practicing social distancing, so will not shake your hand or come closer than 1.5m as well as ensuring good hygiene practices including regular hand washing and using hand sanitiser.
