Clean Energy Reviews | About Us

Our aim

Our mission is to make buying solar & battery storage simple, by providing all the information you need in an easy to digest way.

Clean Energy Reviews (CER) came about in order to help both consumers and solar professionals identify the best quality and most reliable solar panels, inverters and energy storage systems. We do this by analysing and testing solar products, obtaining feedback from solar installers and professionals working in the industry and reviewing products to determine which brands offer the most reliable and best quality products, and which manufacturers provide the best warranty and service. This is based on reliability, value for money, quality, features, efficiency and warranty details. See more on how we rate solar products.

We believe clean energy offers us a great opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint, improve efficiency and reduce costs. Together with help from friends and acquaintances in the clean energy sector, CER aims to pool the knowledge of experienced solar professional and installers to find the best products and services in renewable energy and sustainability.
