Traditionally a mass volume solar module manufacturer of affordable solar panel options. However, Jinko is now becoming respected as a market innovator after successfully claiming the InterSolar Award 2019 (Swan Bifacial). 

Market dominance and innovations of such products are further distancing Jinko solar panels from the entry-level stigma, which has accompanied the brand over many years. Understanding there is an expansive range of Jinko solar panel options, many initial questions come to mind when researching, such as;

Which to avoid?

Residential homeowners should avoid Jinko’s InterSolar Award-Winning solar panel of 2019. One particular variant of this model that is, the JKM380-400M-72H-TV. There is no issue with the module in general. However, the overall dimensions are not ideal in a residential scenario, much like alternative 72-cell (144-half cut) Jinko solar panels.

Even though the higher watt class for the price is appealing, understand that 72-cell solar panels occupy the same surface area in a system when compared to their 60-cell counterparts.

Which to consider?

Through eliminating the alternative Jinko solar panels designed primarily for commercial installations, the Jinko solar panel options are narrowed down by half. Nice work. From this point, understanding the budget and available surface area for system size will ultimately determine the ideal Jinko solar panel for the task.

It’s not all doom and gloom for Jinko’s new darling the Swan. One particular Jinko Swan variant remains an option to be considered.

What is the warranty?

Seeking to differentiate themselves from the pack after adopting a more premium range of solar module options, improved are the warranties. Jinko has now lengthened the product warranty for all module options and performance warranties in the new Swan range.

Product Warranty: As of 2019 Jinko solar panels are equipped with the more preferred 12-year product warranty. A move many alternative manufacturers have adopted to distance themselves from the mainstream pack.

Performance warranty: Selected Jinko solar panel variants carry a slightly different performance warranty. As a solar modules performance warranty defines warranted cell degradation over time, in a nutshell, Jinko performance warranties are as follows after the first year 2.5% nominated loss;

  • Swan bifacial range, 29-years, 0.5% per annum.
  • All other Jinko solar panels, 24-years, 0.7% per annum.

Where are Jinko solar panels made?

Listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: JKS) and a prolific member of the Silicon Modules Super League, Jinko operates multiple manufacturing plants internationally. However, the solar panels received in Australia are derived from Jinko’s fully automated manufacturing facilities in China.

As manufacturing modules are only one element of the process, Jinko solar cell manufacturing occurs in Jinko plants across both China and Malaysia.

As a sign of strength and specifically for the North American market, Jinko, as of 2019 have begun manufacturing solar modules from a newly constructed $50 million plant in Jacksonville, Florida (USA).

Jinko Solar Panel Manufacturing Line

What do they cost?

Expect relatively good value for the efficiencies available. Although Jinko solar system prices are likely to vary dependant on module selection, to inverter selection, and installation specifics. After the current zone 3 STC subsidy (Perth & Bunbury) expect a price range on the following Jinko system sizes;

  • 3kW: $2490 – $4990 AUD.
  • 6kW: $2990 – $6990 AUD.
  • 10kW: $6990 – $14990 AUD.

As prices vary depending on unique circumstances, obtaining a site-specific quotation is a must to help better determine if Jinko solar panels are the perfect fit. If you are only seeking general guides in the early stage, why not grab a copy of the latest PSW digital catalogue featuring Jinko systems and variable installation costs?

Suntech Solar Panels Perth WA Buying Guide.

Suntech Solar Panels by Perth Solar Warehouse

Suntech solar panels, an Aussie success story.

If there’s anything you should take away from this post today, it’s that Suntech is one of the most significant 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.

Suntech Solar Panels Perth WA Product Feature.

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 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.

Which to avoid?

Often recommend as an option for homeowners to avoid, Suntech solar panels do come in 72-cells or the new style 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 is the warranty?

As one of the original solar panel manufacturers to boast a 12 & 25-year warranty, it appears to have become a new norm for many manufacturers to separate themselves from the pack. In a nutshell, the Suntech solar panels warranty is broken up into two.

Product Warranty: This warranty governs the overall product integrity over time. The manufacturer guarantees the Suntech solar panel range for 12-years.

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

Where are Suntech solar panels 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? As it turns out until researching for this post, neither did we.

It’s fair to say that the Suntech solar panels installed in Australia are derived 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 12 & 25-year warranty, where Suntech solar panels truly excel is when combined as part of a system for remarkably higher yields. 

  • 3kW: $2490 – $4490 AUD.
  • 6kW: $2990 – $6490 AUD.
  • 10kW: $6490 – $10990 AUD.

Prices will often vary depending on your preferred inverter selection, installation specifics, power supply, applicable subsidies and more. Above is a general variance for the Perth & Bunbury, Western Australia region with the current STC Zone 3 subsidy applied as a point of sale discount.

Which is ideal for you?

Regarded as one of the more premium Chinese-made solar panel options on SolarQuotes.com.au and amongst industry professionals, Suntech solar panels are still limited to the Australian market.

Even though higher-efficiency panels exist on the manufacturer website, limited options exist as Suntech has refrained from paying the Clean Energy Council approval listing until an increase in demand for greater efficiency in the local market is critical. Until then, the current efficiencies available provide exceptional value for the high-grade product.

Why You Should Avoid 72-Cell Solar Panels.

72-Cell Solar Panels by Perth Solar Warehouse

High power solar panels you should avoid.

Resist the temptation of an appealing higher watt class and avoid 72-cell solar panels or the equivalent in modern 144 half-cut cell designs. 72-cell solar panels are primarily designed by manufacturers for ease of installation in commercial, industrial and grid-scale installations. With larger dimensions and increased weight, selecting 72-cell solar panels for a residential solar project is likely to have some detrimental side effects.

Get the right solar with the right advice. 

Browse at your leisure. The latest edition of the Perth Solar Warehouse solar price list includes only 60-cell solar panel options and so much more:

  • Fully installed 3.3kW, 6.6kW & 10kW+ 60-Cell solar prices.
  • Exclusive discounts & interactive price guide.
  • Mix & match inverter technology.

  • Energy production guide.
  • Estimated savings potential.
  • Payment plan options & more!
The best solar packages Perth & Bunbury region customers love. A must view before buying. 

Unlike alternative electrical purchases in life where higher wattage is more powerful and therefore often better for the task, the same cannot be said for 72-cell solar panels. Solar panels in general form part of a system and that systems ability to generate power utilising a nominated space.

In most instances, 72-cell solar panels do not reduce the required surface area and are therefore no better than their 60-cell counterparts for the task. There is a pupose for such cumbersome solar panels, and it’s not necessarily your residential rooftop. Below are five key areas you need to know before investing your hard-earned money.

Did we miss something you would like to know more about? If so leave it below! – PSW Team.

What are the differences between 60 & 72-cell solar panels?

In short, two additional rows of 6-inch cells (12 cells total) added to a standard width 60-cell solar panel form the basis of 72-cell solar panel designs. Such a result alters specific electrical characteristics. However, the primary difference remains the overall larger physical dimensions.

For ease of comparison, below is a table listing critical feature differences utilising the LONGi LR6-PE solar panel range with like for like 60 cell and 72 cell solar module options.

60-Cell

315W Solar Panel
  • Width 991mm
  • Height 1650mm
  • Weight 18.5kg
  • 60 x 6 inch monocrystalline cells
  • Efficiency 19.3%

72-Cell

375 W Solar Panel
  • Width 991mm
  • Height 1956mm
  • Weight 22.5kg
  • 72 x 6 inch monocrystalline cells
  • Efficiency 19.3%

What are 144 half-cut cell solar panels?

Expect this particular design to replace the 72-cell solar panel variant due to rising demand in the industry. In brief, the 144-cell solar panel is derived by cutting each of the 72-cells in half and arranged in a formation which reduces electrical losses. A result which in turn maximises the efficiency of the solar panel.

The equivalent of this solar panel design in a 60-cell module is 120 half-cut cells. The alternative name associated half-cut cell technology if the number variations weren’t already confusing enough is a split-cell solar module design.

LONGi Solar Panels by Perth Solar Warehouse

5 Reasons to choose 72-cell solar panels.

1) Industry. The ability to support the additional weight of a 72-cell solar panel on the selected mounting location is often a non-issue thanks to reinforced load-bearing capabilities.

2) Industry. Reduced installation time through mounting less solar panels. A result which in turn can have a positive effect on the capital outlay required. Considering nearly all solar installations are often priced per/watt, such is a less likely case.

3) Residential. In the rarest of circumstances where selected roof faces are less than accommodating, achieving electrical design flexibility with 72-cell solar panels over the equal counterpart of a 60-cell module make-up is an option.

4) Residential. Specific 72-cell solar panel designs can assist with an aesthetic presentation where bearer spacings are wider. Just ensure additional reinforced support can be installed to accommodate a more centralised weight distribution.

5) General. Particular module-level optimisation and monitoring requirements at a reduced cost. 

6 Reasons to avoid 72-cell solar panels.

1) Residential. A more concentrated and centralised weight distribution. A result which is more likely to upset the structures integrity over time if installed the same way as a 60-cell solar panel.

2) Residential. Not in the end-users best interest, it’s cheaper for the company from which you are purchasing. Unlike industry, residential solar companies without in-house installers often pay sub-contractors per solar panel. Less panels = less installation costs. 

3) Residential. Comprised of angled hips and valleys Australian residential rooftops can be limited on space. Larger 72-cell solar panels are challenging to adapt to trickier rooflines due to the larger rectangular dimensions. Overall 72-cell solar panel designs are not a very effective use of space when angles are involved.

4) Residential. Looking to expand or replace in time? If ever need be, or for whatever reason, 72-cell solar panel variants with similar electrical characteristics are harder to source. 60-Cell solar panels are, without a doubt, the most common module sizing, and there is an abundance of options available.

5) Residential. Increased structural wind loading. Solar panels, in general, are like sails, the greater the surface area, the more wind you are going to catch. Even though 60-cell solar panels occupy a similar surface area, the reduced size and increased mounting points reduce the amount of pressure at each location.

6) Residential. Manhandling degradation. At the time of installation, the handling of solar panels is critical. The lighter physical nature of a 60-cell solar panel ensures the likelihood of manhandling stress is lessened. These stresses often present themselves over time in the form of snail trails or microcracks and possibly inturn hotspot.

What is the cost difference 60 & 72-cell solar panels?

To purchase by the retailer at wholesale level? Virtually no difference in a like for like 60-cell and 72-cell variant. Often priced on a per/watt basis, solar panels in general form part of a system.

Strip each 60 & 72-cell solar panel variant back to a per watt purchase price at the wholesale level. The cost is almost always identical, as the efficiency and technology define the panel, not its wattage.

Get what you expect.

Below is the quickest and safest way possible to ensure only 60-cell solar panels. Browse an entire solar range (including installed prices) without the worry of any solar panel option being a 72-cell variant. PSW only quote 72-cell solar panels upon request for specific projects.

60-cell solar panels, as opposed to 72-cell solar panels, are the ideal option for residential solar installations. Reasons to avoid 72-cell solar panels outweigh the reasons to choose, one should think twice if 72-cell (144 half-cut) solar panel options are being specified. 

Remember, avoid the temptation of a higher watt class and be guided by efficiency and warranty to determine the value of a solar panel.

Which to avoid?

As with all other brands in the Perth Solar Warehouse Ultimate Guide, residential homeowners should avoid 72-cell sized solar panels and opt for 60-cell solar panels. Yes, the higher watt-class is appealing for the same price (per/watt), however, these are not more innovative.

No more efficient, 72-cell solar panels are heavier to accommodate 12 additional 6-inch cells (or similar). Adding greater weight to your roof structure in a singular area is not ideal for many residential roof types.

Which to consider?

To ensure ease of comparison between brands 60-cell solar panels are where every residential homeowner should be looking. Considering the above 72-cell LONGi solar panels efficiency the below similar technology can easily be identified, LR6-60HPH 300-320M. 

What does this mean? Despite the higher watt class of the 72-cell solar panel, an equal portion of roof surface area is utilised to achieve the desired system capacity with 60-cell solar panels even though there are more panels. Accommodating better weight distribution and ease of formating designs where space limitations/shading exist.

Risen Solar Panels Perth WA

Do Risen solar panels live up to the name?

All of a sudden, it feels like Risen solar panels are being offered everywhere. Consistently a BNEF Tier-1 solar panel manufacturer, Risen Energy has recently become a global top 10 manufacturer by volume (Update: 6th Q2 2019). Irrelevant to product quality, this does tick the box that demand exists for a reputable product in the industry at the price point. With that in mind, there are Risen solar panels homeowners should avoid.

Which Risen solar panels to avoid?

As a residential homeowner, avoiding 72-cell solar panels is a must. Severely inhibited, the mounting systems ability to support the additional weight (especially on tiled roofs) to that of where 60-cell solar panels reign supreme, spreading the load over more frequent supports.

It is important to remember that despite the appealing higher watt class of a 72-cell solar panel (e.g. 325W vs 275W) the surface area occupied on the roof face is identical to a 60-cell solar panel of the same efficiency class, 16.8%.

Which Risen solar panels to consider?

The great news is that the current Risen solar panel offerings are limited in model variances so it can be easier to narrow down which particular model is right for you. If an abundance of space is available, then taking advantage of the more economical polycrystalline variants is a good option.

In saying that, Risen monocrystalline variants, ideal for limited areas to maximise output from the available space, aren’t too much more expensive.

Don’t be fooled by certain marketing exploitations when it comes to mono vs poly by the same manufacturer. The overall product quality is the same. Same back sheet, same glass, same warranty, the cell structure is slightly different, which affects efficiency. A difference which reflects the in price.

What is the warranty?

A slightly better than average 12 & 25-year manufacturer warranty. In what is becoming the new edge, many manufacturers are shifting to a 12 & 25-year warranty as opposed to a 10 & 25-year warranty to assist the definition of better product quality.

The two figures within the warranty can easily be explained as the first figure, 12, being product integrity guaranty. While the second figure, 25, references the annual performance degradation guarantee should the Risen solar panel remain intact. 

Risen Energy Warranty Download >

Where are Risen solar panels made?

Headquartered in Ningbo China, Risen Energy produced solar panels in multiple facilities across China. The most modern being a new 5GW solar cell and module manufacturing plant in Changzhou City which opened January 2018 to accommodate the new multi busbar and half-cut cell module designs.

Global offices to support the Risen solar panel range internationally include:

  • Nürnberg, Germany.
  • Mount Waverley, Victoria, Australia.
  • Porto-Novo, The Republic of Benin (West Africa).
  •  Mexico City, México.
  •  Bangalore, India.
  • Tokyo, Japan.
  • San Jose, CA, USA.
  •  Madrid, Spain.

What do they cost?

Like any solar panel system, variances in cost is derived from system size to installation compatibility and inverter selection. As one of the more affordable solar panel options available, Risen Energy module options after the current STC rebate are likely to cost end-users (fully installed) from:

  • 3kW: $1990 – $3990 AUD.
  • 6kW: $2490 – $5990 AUD.
  • 10kW: $5990 – $9990 AUD.

Use the above prices as a guide only, and always consult a professional for a site-specific evaluation or quote to determine which product pairing is ideal for your scenario.

What Does it Cost to Add More Solar Panels?

Cost to Add More Solar Panels Perth Solar Warehouse

There is a simple equation for such to estimate what it will cost to add more solar panels. But first, a once simple proposition now poses more significant hurdles than initially anticipated. Whether you have the available inverter capacity or not, many installers are now reluctant to touch or alter an existing solar energy system. Options though do exist to maximise your existing solar energy investment.

Thought about replacing your existing solar? 

The latest edition of the Perth Solar Warehouse  solar price list includes all the following need to know information replacement system options and more:

  • Fully installed 3.3kW, 6.6kW & 10kW+ system prices.
  • Exclusive discounts & interactive price guide.
  • Mix & match inverter technology.
  • Exceptional energy storage options.
  • Energy production guide.
  • Estimated savings potential.
  • Payment plan options & more!
The best solar packages Perth & Bunbury region customers love. A must view before buying. 

When in the first contact with a solar company, the reluctance to add more solar panels to an existing solar system is often deafening. As frustrating as it can be, there is usually a good reason for such hesitation. 

Particular laws and accountability for solar systems structured in Australia present little enthusiasm for alternative installers to expand or alter an existing solar PV system, and the relating hesitation is often derived from the following areas:

If by the time you get to the bottom of this post, you feel we forgot to cover something on the cost to add more solar panels to an existing system, leave it in the comments section. – PSW Team.

1. Existing inverter compatibility.

Prepping for future system expansion at the time of purchasing the original system sounded like a great idea, and no doubt cost a fair amount extra, in case you needed to expand. In any other industry, this would have been a superb idea. The downside is that between the time you first decided to install solar to the time that you have decided to expand, chances are the original inverter is no longer on the CEC Approved Solar inverters list.

Nothing is wrong. The manufacturer simply hasn’t paid to keep that model on the list as often a newer model is now available. The adverse effect is that new solar panels added to the system can be no longer eligible to claim Small Technology Certificates (STCs) – your subsidy on the new solar panels.

SMA Solar Inverters Perth Solar Warehouse

2. Past installation standards.

Your previous solar energy system was likely to be installed to standards which were applicable in a prior era of standards. When subsidising surrounds particular products in any industry, the requirement is that the new installation and the system which it is apart of meets the current standards.

The cost to bring the original system up to current requirements must be factored into the price to add more solar panels.

Installer Vision by PSW Energy

3. Warranty obligations.

Who will you call if a fault or failure occurs? The last installer onsite, simple. No matter the issue, if a problem occurs, it is human nature to assume the previous alteration onsite affected the existing system.

Even though this may not be the case, businesses with moral obligation will spend time to investigate and diagnose the issues. Should it be found not to be of the fault of the later installer, who should pay the financial recourse for lost time?

4. Subsidy qualification.

Does the existing system qualify for the subsidy to add more solar panels? The great news is the STC subsidy is based on solar panel quantity and the ability to offset carbon emissions over time.

The downside is that to qualify for the subsidy, the existing system’s inverter must currently be on the approved CEC list of inverters. Past approvals don’t qualify. The installation of the system as a whole must meet current standards. Finally, the new solar panels must be on the current CEC list of approved solar panels.

Installer Vision by PSW Energy

5. Cost to add more solar panels?

Should the stars align and the existing system qualify for current STCs (subsidy), an installer, such as Perth Solar Warehouse, agree to commit to the system expansion, the cost to add more solar panels can often easily be calculated in a cost per watt format for most residential households.

In very general equations not specific to product selection, additional capacity and installation specifics the cost to add more solar panels are often defined between the pricing guidelines from 50c to $1.50 per/watt. A site-specific quote is always the most accurate means of determining this, though.

Mention “EXPANSION BONUS 2019” prior to buying.

6. The alternative.

Forget the subsidy altogether. 

It’s an option, and the only requirements to meet are those set out by Energy Safety WA and the applicable Australian Standards. Essentially, you can source a compatible solar panel (new or second hand) whether it’s on the CEC list or not.

The downside to this is the labour expense alone is likely to cost the same as the cost to add solar panels with the subsidy, which are new.

Remove the current system.

Go entirely new. In what is becoming an increasingly popular trend, from 40c per watt, what should be the seemingly more expensive option often works out to be less overall depending on product selection. Based on the current subsidy structure, many homeowners are currently using this option to their advantage for an entirely new system, increased performance from modern technologies and resetting warranty periods.

To add more solar panels has never been easier. As the current subsidy stands and the unbelievable prices of quality products, hitting the reset button is often an excellent choice for many.

Although certain moral obligations may arise due to waste, rest assured that the removed equipment can be reused for scenarios which don’t qualify for current subsidies.
