At Gold Coast Solar Power Solutions one of our main goals is to deliver quality solar power products that will perform reliably for the duration of their life span.
We have very carefully selected the following products as we believe that they help us reach this goal. We encourage our customers to carry out independent research on the solar power products that we recommend; as we are sure that any independent research will agree that the solar power products we supply are of premium quality.
Solar panels are the part of your solar power system that the world sees. Their home is an extremely harsh environment, being exposed to temperatures ranging from 75°C to below freezing, high UV radiation, strong winds, hail, dirt, acidic bat and bird droppings to name just a few hazards found on a typical Gold Coast rooftop.
As solar panels are warranted to perform in this environment day in and day out for 25 years it is a good idea to ensure that your solar panels are of a high quality. To learn about the differences between solar panels and the brands that we recommend please take the time to check out the following:
Solar Power Inverters
Solar panels are not all that useful without being coupled to a device that can fully utilise the power they are producing. Most solar power systems are coupled to a grid connect inverter – this inverter is the heart of your solar power system.
The grid connect inverters used by Gold Coast Solar Power Solutions are very sophisticated devices, converting the direct current generated in solar panels into alternating current suitable for the grid and your home. In addition, they intelligently monitor your solar system, being responsible for monitoring the systems yield and managing the changes from the grid. Due to the sophisticated nature and the importance of the inverters job it is extremely important to ensure that your inverter is from a reputable manufacturer.
After installing thousands of solar grid connect inverters over many years Gold Coast Solar Power Solutions recommend the use of SMA inverters and Sungrow solar power inverters as quality, reliable products.
