The best solar system in Australia features smart energy management with online consumption monitoring and battery storage. The future of renewables is here with the best solar & storage systems now offering home automation functionality, online monitoring and back to base status reports. Let’s have a look at the components of the best solar system in Australia.
365W High-Efficiency Modules From LG Solar
The NeON R 365W panel is the most advanced module in the LG range and one of the best panels available in Australia both in terms of quality and output in all weather conditions.
The LG Solar NeON R 365W panel is the result of years of research & development. The new LG NeON R has broken through the 20% efficiency barrier to provide an incredible 20.8% efficiency, making it ideal for solar systems seeking visually pleasing panels and for roofs where space is tight.
The 365W NeON R panel features:
- 1700 x 1016 x 40 mm. 60 (6×10) cells per panel
- 25-year material and workmanship warranty!!! Nearly all other panels only offer a 10-year warranty.
- Power tolerance: 0/+3% (positive sorting from 365W up to 376W)
- Panel efficiency: 20.8%!
- Weight: 18.5Kg
- Operating Temperature (°C): -40 to +90
Great Visual Appearance
LG NeON R panels have been designed with appearance in mind. Their black cells, black frames and no metal solders or wires on the front of the panel give a uniform black appearance. Your home deserves the LG NeON R.
25 Years Product Warranty (Parts & Labour)
The LG product warranty of 25 years is 15 years longer than many competitors’ standard 10 years. The warranty is provided by LG Electronics Australia and New Zealand. The warranty includes replacement labour and transport. This is a seriously big deal.
Improved 25 Year Performance Warranty
The NeON R also has a better 25-year performance warranty than most of the panels on the Australian market. It will still achieve 87% of rated output after 25 years, compared to 80.2% for standard panels. The annual degradation rate from year 5 to 25 is 0.4% compared to 0.7% for standard panels.
More Power per Square Metre
LG Solar’s NeON R 365W panel is a similar size to most conventional 260W panels. This means that with the LG NeON R you get an incredible increase in output of nearly 40% per square metre compared to a 260W panel. This allows Solaray designers to install more kW of solar on your roof using the LG NeON R panel.
SolarEdge Smart Solar – The Future of Smart Energy
More Solaray customers are now choosing SolarEdge systems due to the revolutionary SolarEdge technology that turns solar panels into a total home energy management system. Some of the features that now come standard with all SolarEdge systems installed by Solaray include:
- Panel-level output that can significantly increase performance
- Home automation! Send excess solar power into your hot water, air conditioner or pool pumps, and control it all from your phone
- Panel-level monitoring free for the life of your system
SolarEdge offers the most advanced technology available, maximising performance, safety, longevity and reliability.
One of the biggest limitations of a standard solar system is that the panels are installed in series, meaning that the system will always perform at the rate of the worst performing panel. Partial shade on just one panel can have a large impact on the output of a standard system.
According to Renewable Energy World, shading of as little as 9% of a solar system connected to a central inverter, can lead to a system-wide decline in power output by as much as 54%.
It is not just the shade from trees that can affect solar output. Bird droppings and dust, as well as shade from chimneys and power lines, can all affect solar output.
Solar panels are manufactured with a built-in power tolerance of +5W. This means in practice that a panel manufactured as a 290W panel may have an output of up to 295W.
A SolarEdge solar system can take advantage of this extra power, which means more solar power is generated to help you further reduce your power bill.
Solar Battery Compatible
SolarEdge solar systems feature full battery compatibility, which allows you to add a solar battery such as the sonnenBatterie. With a solar storage system, you will be able to store solar power to further reduce your power bills and increase your energy independence.
The world is changing. Join the transition to renewable energy and run your home on solar power. Solar storage allows households to:
- Store excess solar power to use during the evening
- Run your home on solar power 24/7
- Say goodbye to your energy retailer!
SolarEdge panel-level output allows our solar design team to design panel arrays across multiple roof areas – across both different orientations and angles.
If you use most of your power in the afternoon, it can be beneficial to have panels facing both north and west to distribute the output of solar power across the day. This avoids having a big peak of solar power in the middle of the day, making it easier to use a larger percentage of the solar power as it is generated, hence increasing the value of your system.
SolarEdge solar systems are truly expandable, limited only by your roof space and the size of the installed inverter. If a panel needs to be replaced in the future, you will not need to match the new panel to your existing array. This allows you to future-proof technological advancements over the coming years. For example, you may find that in 3 years’ time 450W panels are the market standard!
Module Level System Monitoring
Up to 80% of Solaray customers now choose to power their system with technology featuring panel level output due to the increased system performance, safety and support. DC optimisers allow for panel level optimisation of your solar power system for increased performance and flexibility. DC optimisers can increase output by up to 25% for each panel and provide constant feedback through internet connected system monitoring.
SolarEdge solar systems also include panel level monitoring. The system is connected to the internet to provide real-time output data that can be accessed from anywhere.
The Solaray support team has access to the SolarEdge portal, allowing us to monitor your system, detect faults and facilitate accurate troubleshooting.
SolarEdge solar systems are safe and pose no risk to people or property when installed correctly. Solaray only uses installers accredited by the Clean Energy Council and our install standards are the best in the industry. With a standard inverter, as long as the sun is up the system will be sending DC power to the inverter. With a SolarEdge system, DC wires are designed to automatically de-energise, providing protection to homeowners and to protect technicians during maintenance.

Why sonnenBatterie & sonnenFlat?
The sonnenBatterie with sonnenFlat gives Solaray consumers the most bang for their buck.
Sonnen leads the way with home storage, giving you the ability to reach 100% energy autonomy. In other words, you’ll no longer need to purchase energy from the grid!
Sonnen’s modular design allows for incremental 2kWh battery expansions and a generous selection of storage capacities to choose from, with sizes between 2kWh-16kWh.
sonnenBatterie – The Smartest Solar Battery
The sonnenBatterie is the foundation to achieving up to 100% energy autonomy with your solar system. sonnenBatterie is the most sophisticated solar battery on the market today.
sonnenBatterie is the smartest battery because it;
- Measures your loads in real time – your usage
- Measures your PV output in real time
- Factors in the day of week (your varying day to day usage)
- Factors in the time of year (varying PV availability)
- Uses Weather forecasting (live)
All this data is then processed through sonnen’s self-learning algorithm and accurately predicts the best time to charge and discharge the battery on a live, ongoing and adaptive basis.
For example; if your home uses the most electricity between 6-9 pm, sonnenBatterie would ensure electricity is reserved for these hours, even though you may have started discharging electricity at 4 pm. In other words, sonnenBatterie will ensure power is always available from the best source!
For reference, no other solar battery can do what sonnenBatterie can. All competitors batteries blindly charge and discharge when told to do so.
Key finding: You save the most with sonnenBatterie
