G’Day Donald, Mike here in Tassie, some time ago, I was really in need of some more solar panels and I met Maggie on the net. She was disgusted with the markup that retailers were hitting the people with ,, profiteering swine!!!
To get a VERY good price you have to buy a container load and she didnt have that option, so she came up with the idea of communal buying. She started out small and quite a few people joined ,, like me,, we all used the net to expand the interest and since then Maggs has brought in a lot of stuff from China at realistic prices.
My Panels are fine and the price was little more than a dollar a watt as I remember. I have bought 2 fridges from her and had a surge that took out the electronics — we worked out that lightning must have caused the surge, but Maggie replaced the compressor and the electronics.
I have dealt with her now on and off for about 5 years and have to say ,, she is truthfull reliable helpful and with the communal buying the best prices available!,, heres the house — Cheers Mike
