How to Pick Someone to Help You with Your Off-Grid System

With the rise of misinformation on social media, especially from unqualified individuals on platforms like Facebook, it's essential to find credible sources for setting up your off-grid system. I founded Zero Grid as a qualified electrician who has seen firsthand the dangers of poor advice. Here's how to ensure you choose the right professional for your off-grid system.

Why Qualifications Matter
When selecting someone to help design and install your off-grid system, their qualifications are paramount. This isn’t merely about keeping tradespeople employed; it’s about ensuring safety and understanding. Becoming an electrician or auto-electrician requires years of education and hands-on experience. Understanding the complexities of electrical systems is not something that you can learn overnight.

Safety and Insurance
Another critical reason to choose a qualified professional is insurance. If your system isn’t designed correctly, it can become a significant fire hazard. The designer of the system will be held liable if something goes wrong. If they don’t have the proper liability insurance, your insurance company might refuse to cover damages, leaving you at a considerable loss.

Credentials Check
Always verify the credentials of your system designer. Ask for proof of their qualifications, and if you don’t get a satisfactory response, consider it a red flag and look for someone else.

Need Assistance?
If you need help finding a qualified professional near you, Zero Grid can assist. While we only design and supply systems (as we travel full-time in our bus), we maintain a growing list of recommended professionals who can provide on-the-ground support.

By ensuring you choose a qualified professional, you’re securing not only the efficiency of your off-grid system but also its safety and longevity. At Zero Grid, we’re committed to guiding you every step of the way.
