Solar electric installation firm Beyond Business has gone into administration owing up to $2 million to creditors, with a number of claims for unsatisfactory work outstanding.

The firm went into voluntary administration last week and a number of clients who have been trying to claim warranty repairs on rooftop solar systems installed by Beyond and their subcontractors say the company’s phone is now ringing out.

One subcontractor, Lismore-based Laser Electrical, says his business installed hundreds of systems on behalf of Beyond but had come to realise that the systems were under par.

‘The systems branded as Sunny Roo are low quality and it is just not worth fixing them once you try to get parts,’ Laser’s manager Guy Cameron told local media.

Mr Cameron said he had been approached by a number of Beyond’s customers whose systems had broken down seeking warranty repairs but there was nothing he could do for them.
