Default Solar panels

Yesterday went to sister-in-law house to visit family and have a look at their new solar panels and wiring, etc. Jeez, couldn't believe how the wiring was set up. Very much in my personal opinion the wiring an absolute crappy job. No way would I have accepted what the installers had done for the wiring!

Sounds like a cowboy job. The standards for tradesmen here are certainly lacking here. I wonder if the power supplier even looked at the work (if it is grid tied)?

Not yet connected. Seems to be an issue dragging on for them. Not sure their plans whether it will be grid tied or not.
Bottom line for me is the wiring/cabling is very unsightly. I'm surprised the sister-in-law husband has accepted the standard of work. When sister-in-law os next here I will tell her what I think. I know she's going to agree with me!!!

If they have not made final payment they should ask for the wiring to be redone neatly or refuse to make final payment.

the sister-in-law husband is very clued up so I'm quite surprised he's accepted the standard of work. Last year himself and older son replaced the verandah wood. They did an absolutely fantastic job. What they did will last well over the next ten or fifteen years.
I think the electrician who installed lighting for our new verandah could have done a much better job. If he saw what had been done I reckon he'd say they had been ripped off.
I've no idea if sister-in-law and husband finances are in good order. Both got good jobs, plus two sons earn decent salary. One lives in Budapest.
Neighbours have solar power too but there's no ugly wiring/cabling.
I honestly don't understand what's happened here! Hope sister-in-law comes here soon so I can ask about it.
