How Do I Know What’s High Quality and What’s Not?
There’s huge variation in the quality of solar power systems in Australia, so it makes sense to know what to look for when buying a system.
The general rule of thumb is ‘you get what you pay for’.
There are some incredibly cheap systems available, but what’s more important than the upfront cost is the amount of electricity your system produces over its lifetime. ie. how much it will save you. You’re better off paying a bit more for a high-performance system, than not paying enough for an inferior one.
The Energy Experts’ preferred panels are the LG NeON H modules. Take a look at the LG Beginners Guide to Solar to get an understanding of the importance of high-performance panels. They produce more electricity and take up less roof space than conventional panels.
If you’re considering battery storage at some point, then panel performance is critical. To be able to fill your battery each day, no matter what the weather, you need to install panels that perform well in low light conditions, as well as in hot and cold conditions (not just on beautiful, sunny days).
For this reason, we recommend LG panels, which have not only proven to perform better in all weather conditions, they’re also more durable, they degrade slower and come with a much longer warranty than conventional panels.
The Energy Experts is proud to be the preferred local LG Dealer. We’re also very pleased to be a signatory with the Clean Energy Council Approved Solar Retailer program, which give you greater assurance you’re getting exactly what you paid for, as we meet significantly higher standards than standard solar companies.
