Referral program terms and conditions
Ecotech Energy offers a Referral Program for current and previous clients. This program offers a referral fee for successful commercial solar installations that are introduced by previous commercial solar clients. A referral fee will be paid to the party that introduces a new customer to, and where a commercial solar system is installed by Ecotech Energy. The final referral fee will be based on system size, cost and location.
All referral fees will be agreed upon by both parties prior to payment. No part of the referral fee may be used to discount or offset the installation cost of any new system. To be eligible for a referral fee, the new installation must be within the Melbourne metropolitan area, and must be a new customer.
A new customer is defined as a company, business, entity, person or property that Ecotech Energy has not previously had contact with, or provided an estimate or quote for solar services.
