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 overthe years, due to emerging technologies and competition, it’s still best to doyour research before you invest in ‘cheap’ solar power.
In 2017, the Clean Energy Council raised questions about thequality of cheaper solar panels and how the manufacturers descriptions don’toften 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 offactors, such as:
- Capacity (watts)
- Quality of materials and parts
- Warranty period
- The quality of the inverter they are connectedto
- The quality, experience and expertise of thepeople who are designing and installing the system for you!
You can see now that it’s very hard to answer the milliondollar question of: “how much does solar power cost?”
Simply put, would you rather have the best quality solarpanels that will last you a lifetime, or risk your property and your hardearned money on poor quality products that might cost thousands to repair orreplace later. For us, its an easy decision. Quality always wins over price!
