The Truth about ‘German Solar’ Panels in Australia

Are German Solar panels in Australia the best on the market and are they worth the money?

6kW QCells Enphase Castle HillGerman companies are renowned for their high standards of manufacturing, and this was particularly true in the solar industry.

Buying a panel from a company such as Q Cells or Solar World was a reliable way of ensuring you were buying a quality system, without delving into the mysterious world of Chinese solar manufacturing to try and differentiate one panel from the next.

Unfortunately, however, all of the main German manufacturers are now either making their panels in Asia or do not have a local office here in Australia.

Why Choose Quality Solar Panels?

Our staff are constantly hearing feedback from customers who bought a cheap system or know of someone who did and who are now regretting the decision.

“I bought a 4 kW system and the most it has ever achieved is 2 kW of power.”

The output is everything in residential solar power. The more solar power you generate, the lower your power bill should be. When you buy a quality solar panel, you are ensuring that your panel has the built-in technology to maximise solar output in all light conditions, especially in NSW where cloud cover and hazy days are common.

“I’m calling to get a price on new panels, my system isn’t working and I can’t get in contact with my installer”.

The other problem is the cost of replacing cheap products that are not working and are not adequately covered under warranty. Reputable solar manufacturers are publicly listed companies with legal requirements to honour their warranty commitments. Importantly they should have an Australian office so that any faulty products are not only covered under warranty but replaced in good time and include installation and labour in their service.

Buying a quality system reduces the risk of costly repairs over the life of your system.
