Enphase Inverters Perth WA Ultimate Buyers Guide.

Enphase Inverters by Perth Solar Warehouse
Let’s not waste your time telling you the benefits of Enphase inverters. Finding your way to this post, there’s no doubt you’ve had the run through by so-called sales gurus and alternative blogs. You’re here because you want the juice. The information you need to know before committing to an above-average solar investment.

INSIDE!

Enphase microinverters certainly have their place. However, does that automatically qualify them for your installation? No. Fact is, Enphase inverters have successfully evolved, and in 2021 there are selected models/ system combinations you no longer need to consider.

Beyond being sold an outdated model, you need to know if the price is right, especially when combined with your ideal solar panel selection. Once again, Perth Solar Warehouse Tech Support to the rescue with your ultimate product insight!

Which to avoid?

Enphase is now successfully producing its seventh-generation devices. A result which renders previous generation Enphase models as an avoid on the Perth Solar Warehouse scale of inverter selection. There’s nothing wrong with the past models in their time. However, when investing a reasonable sum into advanced technology, you deserve the latest technology.

Which to consider?

Here’s the thing with Enphase. The difference in generations will often make little difference for the correct panel size — minor efficiency tweaks, slight output differences, etc. The evolution indeed occurs within the communications gateway, the Enphase Envoy (explained further later). 

Back to the Enphase inverters, so many generations are almost forced as solar panel efficiencies and peak power ratings improve over time. Therefore, it’s necessary to be releasing new inverter models every few years.

In this case, newer or bigger isn’t always better. One must consider the system as a whole to determine which Enphase inverter is better for the task. For Perth and Bunbury region customers, it’s all about combined system AC output. The limiting factor which you must exploit to ensure maximum possible kWh from a system when grid/ feed-in tariff limitations are in play from either Western Power or Synergy.

What is the warranty?

Australia has some pretty enduring conditions up on the rooftop. Just think of the middle of Summer. That’s why Enphase inverters are equipped with a reliable 10-year product and service warranty.

Different from alternative 5+5-year warranties where the second 5-years is a parts only guarantee. Enphase inverters define consumer assurance with 100% backing if installed to manufacturer specifications.

To ensure your Enphase inverter system is installed to manufacturer specification, ensure you utilise an Enphase endorsed installer such as Perth Solar Warehouse.

Where are they made?

Much like the Apple iPhone of solar, Enphase is designed in California, assembled in China. As with many alternative advanced solar technology brands, Enphase’s strengths lie within design, technology, software and support. Therefore, manufacturing is successfully outsourced through key partners such as Flextronics in China to ensure such sophistication remains affordable for many.

What do they cost?

An Enphase system isn’t necessarily “Open Source” and therefore utilising it as a replacement inverter technology to an existing system isn’t practical. Incorporating Enphase inverters as part of a new system though has many unrivalled benefits and cost differentiates manly between module selection and installation variances.

Which is ideal for you?

Here’s the great news. Both current Enphase models work with single & three-phase power supplies. Tick. 

Now, you may be selecting a larger solar panel wattage. However, this doesn’t automatically qualify the IQ7+ as the ideal candidate. Yes, the IQ7+ does possess a larger DC input power range, but the key for most is the nominated AC output power as this defines grid limitations. 

Inverters are built to cope with module oversizing. Your mission is to ensure that baby can output its peak power for longer — a result which exploits grid limitations and is also endorsed by Enphase.

Suntech Solar Panels Perth WA Ultimate Buyers Guide.

Suntech Solar Panels by Perth Solar Warehouse

If there’s anything you should take away from this post today, it’s that Suntech is one of the most significant technological developments to come out of Australia in recent history. More than just another BNEF Tier-1 solar panel manufacturer, Suntech solar panels are designed to perform in the enduring Australian conditions, while founded off the back of Australian ingenuity and investment.

INSIDE!

All seems well and good having an Australian founded and designed product history, although, what does this mean if Suntech solar panels are not Australian-made? Truth be told, a lot more than many would expect. 

Despite a financial blip over a decade ago, Suntech has been resurrected and remains one of the few solar panel manufacturers who continue to invest millions into the Australian economy through renewable energy R&D in collaboration with well known and respected Australian universities. 

Suntech has become an evolved brand perfectly adapted to the new world. There is no doubt the connection between Suntech and Australia is as strong as the brand’s inception two decades ago.

Discover the detail. Get your copy of the latest Perth Solar Warehouse Solar Price list delivered direct to your inbox. 

Which to avoid?

Often recommend as an option for homeowners to avoid, Suntech solar panels do come in 72-cells or the new style of 144 half-cell variants. The great news is that within the localised Perth solar market, such module variants are almost non-existent in the Suntech range.

Considering the above, there isn’t much stopping an alternative importer bringing such to Australia and an unscrupulous marketer sprucing these extra-large modules as ultra-high efficiency due to the larger watt class.

What's the warranty?

As one of the original solar panel manufacturers to boast a 15 & 25-year warranty, it appears to have become a new norm for many solar panel manufacturers to separate themselves from the pack. In a nutshell, the Suntech solar panels warranty is broken up into two.

Product warranty governs the overall product integrity over time. The manufacturer guarantees the Suntech solar panels range for 15-years.

Performance warranty defines the rated output degradation (subject to Standard Test Conditions) overtime should the module remain intact. Suntech solar panels are accompanied by a 25-year linear performance guarantee which states the solar panel shall not degrade by more than 0.7% per annum after the first year at standard test conditions.

Period: Degradation period, Year-1: maximum warranted output degradation in the first year, P/A after: maximum warranted output degradation per annum within the nominated Period after Year-1.

Where are they made?

Predominantly in multiple branches across China depending on the specific module type. However, did you know that Suntech also has manufacturing facilities in Germany and Japan? 

It’s fair to say that the Suntech solar panels installed in Australia are derived though from Suntech’s fully automated production facilities in China. A well publicised, high-quality manufacturing line which presents exceptional value for the final product produced.

Internationally though, Suntech’s global support spans the essential continents where widespread distribution exists for the product:

  • NSW, Australia.
  • Dubai, U.A.E.
  • South Africa.
  • Hong Kong.
  • Germany, Europe.
  • Wuxi, China.

What do they cost?

For one of the more esteemed Chinese made solar panels available, Suntech solar panels are considered severely affordable for the overall product quality at hand. Even though a potentially lower watt class than alternative mono-crystalline solar panels with a similar 15 & 25-year warranty, where Suntech solar panels truly excel is when combined as part of a system for remarkably higher yields.

Trina Solar Panels Perth WA Ultimate Buyers Guide.

Trina Solar Panels by Perth Solar Warehouse

As one of the most prominent solar panel manufacturers over the last two decades by volume, there is no doubt Trina solar panels are often a consideration for many when shortlisting options. Alike all leading volume-based manufacturers, Trina solar panels aren’t immune to a share of batch related issues. Therefore, are modern variants of Trina solar panels likely live up to expectation?

INSIDE!

Now one of the more respected solar panel manufacturers, there is no question that Trina as a brand has supported past batch related errors exceptionally well in Australia. One step further, no longer a manufacturer of entry level module designs, Trina solar panels on certain levels are now pushing evolutionary boundaries.

That being said, there remain selected Trina solar panels homeowners should avoid and consider. Evaluate the initial need to know information before buying, including which Trina solar panel and inverter selection is ideal for you.

Discover the detail. Get your copy of the latest Perth Solar Warehouse solar price list. 

Which to avoid?

Selected retailers/installers around selected West Australian regions promote larger 72-cell (or 144-half cell) Trina solar panels as ultra-high powered solar module options. Unfortunately, these modules are no more high powered than their 60-cell counterparts as the efficiency is often identical. 

The overall dimensions of 72-cell (144-half cell) Trina solar panels are larger and heavier with often increased side effects in residential scenarios. Primarily designed for greater load bearing infrastructure such as commercial installations, 72-Cell solar panels are designed for a purpose which isn’t necessarily your home.

What is the warranty?

A new 15-year extended product warranty certainly puts Trina solar panels in a slightly more premium space. However, the new Vertex-S Trina solar panels, when purchased and installed through Perth Solar Warehouse can be equipped with an appealing 20-year or 25-year manufacturers product warranty for an additional fee.

As such, the comprehensive product warranty nature covers both service and product for 15 20-years or 25-years in the event of a failure. Comprehensive in the nature as alternative solar panel product warranties fall short of covering the service cost in the event of a product issue.

Where are they made?

One of the few true vertically integrated solar panel manufacturers of the world, Trina Solar now manufactures each key component of their solar panel options. This includes the following critical processes; 

Silicon Ingots  >  Silicon Wafers  >  Solar Cells  >  Solar Modules. 

A majority of solar panel manufacturers are purely assembly points comprised of multiple component manufacturers.

A part of the elite Silicon Module Super League, Trina Solar panels and their associated components are derived predominantly from Jiangsu, China.

Trina Solar Cell Sorting Step

What do they cost?

Variances exist between specific Trina solar panels and the solar inverters in which they are connected too. Furthermore, the installation plays a significant and vital part towards determining overall final cost. It is though possible to gauge some general price variances according to system size.

Not one Perth Solar Warehouse customer has ever endured additional expense beyond the point of quotation and neither shall you. Perth Solar Warehouse remain committed to being both thorough and accountable for all customers.

Which is ideal for you?

Much like in the above “which to consider”  section, your ideal Trina solar panel option will be defined by your specific installation. Those with an abundance of optimised roof area can afford to save on module selection cost through less expensive, lower efficiency Trina solar panels.

Module specifics aside, the alternative critical factor to ensure the desired Trina solar panel variant is compatible is via the connected inverter technology. Each Solar inverter should always be custom selected based on individual site requirements due to variable electrical characteristics.

LG Solar Panels Perth WA Ultimate Buyers Guide.

LG Solar Panels Perth WA by PSW

Doing any form of research into solar, it soon becomes clear that the global mega corporation which is LG has developed an industry-leading range of solar products. With anything leading though, there is usually is an exceedingly higher price tag to match when compared to alternatives. However, the overall value must be considered.

INSIDE!

Initially, let’s put LG’s solar and energy division into perspective. Most will relate with the LG brand to something such as a TV or washing machine. A good upper middle class product, not the cheapest and often not the most expensive.

When it come to energy generation and storage though, LG has had clear foresight within the last decade to acknowledge the self-generation energy sector as the next wave. What’s better, the focus was not on cheap volume market dominance. It’s about innovation and sector relevance for LG’s energy division.

Which to avoid?

Residential homeowners don’t require the larger more cumbersome size of 72-cell solar panels from any manufacturer. Especially when there is equal efficiency in a lighter, more adaptable 60-cell solar panel by the same manufacturer available. 

One of the few times solar panel wattage is very misleading. On the upside though is that 72-cell LG solar panels are very hard to come by in the local market and often only specified for larger power generation applications.

Which to consider?

LG is one of the few solar panel manufacturers only produce ultra-high efficiency solar panel options. This is made even easier with a very slim product offering in the 60-cell solar module variants.

Q1 2021, only LG NeON 2 from 370W will be available on a distribution level and therefore, reflected through installer channels. The LG NeON R solar panel range will remain as an industry-leading ultra-high efficiency solar panel option but priced out of reach for most. An average 20% price premium for the 1.5% module efficiency increase.

What is the warranty?

An elite warranty on the solar panel warranty spectrum. All N-Type LG solar panels are backed by a comprehensive 25 & 25-year warranty. What does this mean? Many alternative solar panel warranties are layered as a 10 & 25-year warranty or similar. The initial figure being the most critical as a product warranty. The second defining a solar panels warranted performance degradation should the product remain intact.

 A category where no two solar panel performance warranties are ever the same. What does a 25-year performance warranty mean? In the simplest explanation possible, by year 25, an LG solar panel shall still be working within 90% of its rated output. Common alternative 25-year performance warranties stipulate an 80% (20% degradation) performance rating in the same time.

Where are they made?

As a leading solar module manufacturer, LG NeON range solar panels are manufactured in one of the world’s most advanced solar panel manufacturing facilities in Gumi, South Korea. Renowned as a global hub for modern manufacturing excellence. LG Mono X Plus range solar modules remain constructed to the same standard as LG NeON range solar panels, however, are constructed via outsourcing agreements in China.

One can be assured that as a premium module manufacturer, LG solar panels are derived from leading-edge, fully automated production facilities utilising LG’s renowned high-quality material selection.

LG Solar Battery Facility by Perth Solar Warehouse

What do they cost?

LG Solar panels are more affordable than ever.  The Perth Solar Warehouse range of LG solar panels which feature the InterSolar award-winning 2016, NeON 2 variant, exceeds expectation when subjected to real-world conditions thanks to the remarkable Cello® technology inside.

Boasting high-yield energy production and guaranteed for 25-years the overall value for the LG product range is extraordinary. Black anodised framing compliments an aesthetically pleasing style requirement. While an all-white ultra-durable substrate maintains the cooler less resistive environment required for the NeON 2 Cello cells to achieve maximum production.

Through incorporating the LG Mono X Plus solar module, the LG Solar price range is now broader than ever with greater affordability.
