When you see the word ‘cheap’ on something for sale, what other words do you immediately associate with it?
Poor quality? Faulty? Fake? It’s rare to get a confident feeling from ‘cheap’ products and solar should be no different.
Whilst the cost of solar panels have greatly decreased over the years, due to emerging technologies and competition, it’s still best to do your research before you invest in ‘cheap’ solar power.
In 2017, the Clean Energy Council raised questions about the quality of cheaper solar panels and how the manufacturers descriptions don’t often match the actual solar panel and aren’t meeting the standards. In all, their message was very clear – don’t just buy the cheapest panels you find!
The cost of your solar panels will depend on a number of factors, such as:
- Capacity (watts)
- Quality of materials and parts
- Warranty period
- The quality of the inverter they are connected to
- The quality, experience and expertise of the people who are designing and installing the system for you!
You can see now that it’s very hard to answer the million dollar question of: “how much does solar power cost?”
Simply put, would you rather have the best quality solar panels that will last you a lifetime, or risk your property and your hard earned money on poor quality products that might cost thousands to repair or replace later. For us, its an easy decision. Quality always wins over price!
