The Panel That Is Leaving All Others In The Dark

Technology in the solar power industry has improved substantially over the last few years, with both Enphase and LG Solar leading the way with exciting new developments. As pricing continues to fall, more and more of our customers are choosing quality products to ensure long-term performance, reliability and local support. A top of the range system with LG Solar panels may take an extra year or two to pay for itself, however, the long-term benefits are significant. The LG NeON R 365W Module Product Information LG has introduced the award-winning 330W NeON 2 solar panel with Cello technology, which maximises

Why we don’t use 72 Cell Solar Panels for residential solar systems

We are increasingly being asked to supply and install 72 cell solar panels for residential customers. Firstly, a quick summary of the differences between a 60 cell and a 72 cell panel. The difference is as simple as it sounds – a 72 cell panel has an extra 12 cells which mean the output is increased – usually from the standard 270W per panel up to around 310W or 315W, without any increase of efficiency. The increase in output per panel is simply achieved by making the panel bigger, not more efficient (in fact they are usually marginally less efficient).

Prepare for Solar Storage with a Battery Ready Solar System

The next big wave in the solar power industry has begun, with Solaray now installing solar battery storage solutions from a number of leading brands. There are already 1.5 million solar systems installed across Australia, and battery storage is expected to make solar power an attractive investment for millions more Australian households that have low daytime power consumption due to work and school commitments. Australia has been identified as one of the best countries in the world for households to have solar storage due to the high cost of electricity and low feed-in tariffs for the solar power that is

Australia Leads The World In Rooftop Solar

Australia once again is leading the world in the deployment of rooftop solar, with an impressive 4.6GW of solar installed in 2015. Check out this cool video about just how far the solar industry has come since 2007. It’s something Australians should be very proud of. With a population of around 24 million, we now have an impressive 1.5 million solar systems installed across Australia, which means around 18% of us now live in solar-powered homes. From data released by the Clean Energy Regulator, Australian installed around 120,000 solar systems in 2015. Not bad! But the best is yet to

It’s Time To Get Excited About Solar Storage

Energy Storage is a buzzing topic in the solar community, and we anticipate that Solar Storage will transform Australia’s energy market and create yet another wave of solar uptake. However, before installing batteries, we want people to think about their electricity consumption and pick the best solar and battery system for their house. In this article, we will look at why it’s time to get excited about solar storage in 2016. Solar Energy Storage is about to get a lot cheaper At the moment, a fully installed hybrid solar system with solar storage is somewhere in the vicinity of $15,000
