Trina 275-315W Solar Panels
Trina Solar is the world’s number 1 solar PV module supplier with more shipments than any other solar panel manufacturer in 2014. The Trina 275-315W range of modules are very popular in Australia due to very good high temperature performance, quality construction and value for money.
Trina Solar has a local technical support team in Australia and also invest heavily in R&D here in Australia. Trina has a partnership with the Australian National University and the Australian Solar institute, developing next generation technology in Canberra.
The Trina module has a 10 year product warranty and a 25 year linear power warranty.
Canadian Solar 260-340 Watt Solar Panels
Canadian Solar 260-340 Watt range of Solar modules are available from 260Watt up to 340Watt and include high efficiency Ku panels, large max power 72 cell and mono-PERC Solar Panels. New technology offers superior low irradiance performance in the morning, in the evening and on cloudy days, increasing the energy output of the panel and the overall yield of the solar system.
Canadian Solar also offers a robust All-Black panels with 60 solar cells are specifically targeted for consumers in the residential market.
Canadian Solar secures your investment with a 10 year product warranty and a 25 year linear performance warranty.
Sunpower 327-435W Solar Panel
SunPower high efficiency solar technology is the best choice for space-constrained rooftops. With higher energy production per square metre, you need less roof space to achieve your electricity production goals.
More Electricity = More Saving
SunPower solar panels are designed to wake up earlier, work harder, and turn off later in the day. So you can make the most of abundant solar energy and the vast savings it brings.
The SunPower Maxeon® solar cell is fundamentally different, and dramatically better. With its unique copper foundation, these cells deliver unmatched reliability and allows SunPower to build the highest efficiency solar panels you can buy for your roof.
Not only are SunPower solar panels the most powerful and efficient on the market, they’re also the best- looking. Thanks to SunPower® Maxeon® solar cell technology, SunPower panels have no grid lines and blend harmoniously into the roof of your home. Backed by the industry’s best warranty, our residential solar panels combine brains, brawn and beauty to provide the most efficient, renewable solar power.
SunPower solar systems are meticulously designed and tested to stand up to the harshest conditions; temperature swings, battering winds, humidity, hail, and more. That’s why SunPower panels perform consistently for well over 25 years.
SunPower is proud to offer a 25-year warranty as efficient and dependable as its solar panel technology. SunPower not only produce the worlds most reliable and highest performing solar systems, they stand behind them with the industry’s best combined power and product warranty.
Solarworld 280-300W Solar Panels
Solarworld Protect solar modules are manufactured in Freiberg Germany and offer an industry leading 30 year performance warranty. The Protect panels have a double layer of glass that fully encapsulates the solar cells, producing an extremely long life product with approximately half the degradation of other solar manufacturers. We recommend Solarworld Protect panels if you are looking for a real high quality German built solar panel that is built to last in Australian conditions.
Q-Cells 255-265w Solar Panels
The Q-Cell 255-265w Q.Pro G3 Solar module is available from 255Watt up to 265watt and is the third generation module by Hanwha Q-Cells. The Polycrystalline cells offer excellent low light performance and also offers good high temperature performance for Australian Conditions.
Multi-crystalline (Poly) solar cells
Poly-crystalline cells have very good temperature coefficients and are found in Trina Solar and Solarworld PV-modules. You can recognize the difference by the speckled appearance of poly-crystalline. Poly-crystalline is well suited to Perth’s hot weather conditions.
Mono-crystalline solar cell
Mono-crystalline PV-cells, such as Solar Panels by Sunpower, are made from thin slices of a single crystalline silicon ingot, where Poly-crystalline has many small silicon crystals.
Back contact technology – mono-crystalline cell
Back contact mono-crystalline PV-cells, such as in Sunpower Maxeon technology, have the highest output capacity per square metre. They also have the highest efficiency panels available on the market today.
Thin film solar modules
Thin film modules have a very low production cost, but their efficiency is very low. This means that a larger number of panels would be needed to cover the same energy output as generated with conventional silicon PV-cells. Thin film technology has no traditional solar cells, but instead has a thin film substrate applied to a glass surface, reducing the production time and materials. Substrates include cadmium telluride (CdTe), copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS), and amorphous thin-film silicon (a-Si, TF-Si).
