At Gold Coast Solar Power Solutions we firmly believe in utilising quality solar panels.
Solar panels are installed in extremely harsh environments where they have to endure a wide range of temperatures, U.V. radiation, high winds, rain and even hail. If you are located within a kilometre from the coast the solar panels also have to be able to endure salt spray from the sea.
Quality solar panels are designed to handle these elements every day. Solar panels are backed by long warranties guaranteeing the power output that you can expect; with long warranties it is very important to ensure you use solar panels from manufacturers that are long standing, reputable firms that are not going to disappear any time soon. Unfortunately in our time in the industry we have seen many “cheap” manufacturers come and go, leaving disgruntled customers in their wake.
Please take the time to read and understand the following information in regards to solar panels and quality brands that we recommend.
