BUSTING THE MYTH
ABOUT QUALITY SOLAR
Thinking about switching to solar but confused by the information out there about picking the best solar panel manufacturers? In this blog we will cover how to select good quality solar panels (and it’s not what it seems!), as well as our list of recommended suppliers.
Buying Quality Solar Panels
With hundreds of solar panel brands on the market, it can be confusing to determine how to pick the best quality solar panels. To help customers, the solar industry has come up with a Tier system, ranking panels from Tier 1 to 3 based off certain factors like:
- Service and support
- Price competitiveness
- And more (see the full list here)
However, the use of the “Tier 1” ranking is often used loosely by solar panel manufacturers, so it might not be a good indicator of the quality of the panels. It’s more important to look for a company that has an office within Australia so that any warranty claims can be resolved quickly and you are assured that local technicians are familiar with the product!
While Tier 1 sounds like it's the best quality, in our opinion it’s not a rubber stand of quality - so be sure to research all parts of your solar system to ensure you’re set up for success!
