  • Look for developers with multiple years of experience within the renewable energy industry.


2. Communication and Customer Service:

  • Effective communication is crucial for the success of the project.
  • Choose a developer who is responsive, transparent, and prioritises customer service.


3. Financial Stability:

  • Ensure the developer has a strong financial background to support the project from start to finish.


4. Technical Expertise:

  • They should be able to provide guidance on the most suitable renewable energy projects which suit your specific needs.


5. Quality of Equipment:

  • Choose a developer that uses high-quality solar panels, turbines, inverters, etc.


6. Project Management Capabilities:
