Quality Solar Panels and What to Look for


Solar panels come in a range of different price brackets, models and brands, and it can be quite overwhelming trying to figure out which ones are good and which ones aren’t. If you are in the early phases of your solar journey, you are probably wondering what exactly constitutes a ‘good’ or ‘high-quality’ solar panel.


At SunEnergy, our combined years of experience with Australian solar has allowed us to develop an understanding of what a good solar panel looks like. If you are looking into solar, and want to know how to find the best panels for your situation, we have you covered.



Often, the retailer that you purchase your solar system from isn’t actually the manufacturer. It is essential to consider the location of the manufacturer, the history and the process they undertake. While you may think you are getting a quality product, the manufacturing may have its own, separate reputation that should be considered. When looking into a particular installation company and retailer, ask about what products they offer, and more importantly, who makes them.



The best way to find out what constitutes a high-quality solar panel in Australia is to do some research on solar itself. By understanding the function of solar panels, you will have a better understanding of which system operates best. Similarly, you can research the testimonials of everyday users who have bought solar panels. Reading reviews and personal experiences will help you gauge what has and what hasn’t worked for certain companies.



The cheapest option often isn’t the best option when it comes to solar power. Price can be an indicator as to how good a solar panel may be. In many cases, the more care that has been put into solar panels, the more they cost. Price can sometimes be a good indicator as to what quality the panels are, and if you are expecting a midrange product, the midrange price bracket should be what you’re looking for.


Tier 1

Finally, in Australia, manufacturers are ranked. The best quality solar panels will come from a Tier 1 manufacturer. This means a few things: the company invests heavily in research and development, they are in the top 2% of solar manufacturers, and they have at least five years experience in the industry. At SunEnergy, we offer panels designed and built by Tier 1 companies and can help you get the highest-quality solar system available.
