Solar Panels Brisbane

Which solar panel is right for your home?

There are so many solar panels to choose from and every company says they have the best. Well, they can’t all be the best. Not all companies are as honest and transparent with their quotes as what we believe they should be. The quality of the solar panel should be a key point to consider when purchasing a solar system and differentiating one brand of panels from another is not that easy.

That’s why we have based our selection of solar panels on the tier ratings of the panel manufacturers to which there are three tier ratings that are commonly used in the solar industry.

Solar Performance & Safety Check

What are Tier Ratings?

  • Tier 1 rated solar panels - are the lowest risk and have a proven history of quality and overall performance. –The main benefits of these manufacturers, which total only about 3% of the manufacturers in the market, is that they are vertically integrated, meaning they make the whole panel from start to finish, not just assemble them, they are very innovative and invest heavily in development & research, they use automated robotic manufacturing techniques that ensure superior standards of quality and they would usually have over 5 year’s experience in making solar panels.
  • Tier 2 rated solar panels - are usually cheaper and although there are some good ones at the top of the scale, there are some that may be riskier to use near the bottom These manufacturers comprise about 7% of the market, and they usually have only been making panels for approx two to five years. They would invest relatively small amounts in development & research and their use of robotic automation would not be a major factor in their production lines.
  • Tier 3 rated solar panels - should be avoided in our opinion. They are much cheaper, however, please remember you get what you pay for. These manufacturers comprise approx 90% of the market however they are least experienced. They usually just assemble other company’s components and are very high in manpower input rather than any mechanisation. Another important factor to think about is whether they are third party approved panels that have been scientifically tested and rated for their efficiency and quality.
