When you’re installing solar panels, it’s important to consider the quality of their manufacturing. Solar panels are divided into three tiers of excellence.
As there’s quite a variation in the quality of solar panels, it’s important you seriously consider your choices to select the best system for your needs. Many clients focus solely on cost and go with the most affordable option, but there are a number of other factors you should consider when making your decision.
The following are just a few reasons why Apollo Solar is the clear choice when it comes to solar panels in Queensland:
If you’re considering making the switch to solar, choose Sumec Phono Solar. Our expert team of engineers have crafted the Diamond Dual Glass panels, which have been designed with the Australian climate in mind. Unlike many generic solar panels, which use low-grade plastic backsheets in their construction, Phono Dual Glass panels replace these backsheets with a dual layer of toughened glass. This offers the solar cells the protection they need to hold up against even the toughest weather conditions.
Take hail, for example. Generic solar systems are hail-tested with 25mm hailstones, which are shot at the panels at a speed of 80km/hr. The Diamond Dual Glass panels take this a step further, standing strong in the face of 45mm stones hurled at a whopping 110km/hr. And there’s more. These panels feature Bifacial technology, which allows up to 25% more power to be absorbed from both sides.
Apollo Solar has proudly partnered with Sumec as a reputable installer of these outstanding panels. We stand by the quality of our products and installation methods and love helping our clients maximise their energy efficiency and save money.
Yes, brackets are available to tilt the panels towards the sun. Installing solar panels this way is often easier than on traditional slanted roofs because access is easier.
Australia is in the southern hemisphere so the panels should be north facing. If this is not possible, west-facing panels are the next best solution but they can be up to 15% less efficient.
Installations that are not street-facing should not need planning permission. Street facing installations and those on heritage buildings may need planning permission. But you should always check with your local council first.
It’s not about how many panels you need, rather it is how much energy you need to generate.
For example, you may need a 6.6kW system to power your home. This could consist of 20x330W panels or 24x275W panels. Either way, they both result in 6.6kW of energy.
