All solar panels are not the same. They vary enormously in efficiency, output, build quality and longevity. You wouldn’t buy a no-name car, and solar panels are much the same.
That’s why our panels only come from Tier 1 manufacturers – established brands with proven track records, after-sales support and class-leading performance.
The best solar panels offer:
- Performance – efficiency, power output, stability and long-term performance (minimal degradation over time)
- Longevity – build quality, materials and ability to stand up to the elements from baking Penrith summers to freezing Blue Mountains winters
- Warranty – not just the length of warranty, but the likelihood that the supplier will be around in 25 years to honour it
- Appearance – let’s be honest, we want something that will look good on our roof!
- Value – cheap usually means sacrifices in performance or quality. We choose panels that offer the best balance of performance, quality and price.

The solar industry has been going through constant restructuring due to global over capacity and price pressure. Between 2011 and 2015, more than 100 solar companies went bankrupt, became insolvent, assigned to creditors or acquired by other businesses. Such volatility highlights the importance of choosing a secure enough of a solar company, which will be able to honour the warranty it provides with its products.
With Q CELLS high quality modules you are covered by a 12 year product warranty and a 25 year linear performance guarantee. The linear performance guarantee certifies that your Q CELLS module will produce at least 97% of the minimal rated power output in the first year and a maximum reduction in output of 0.6% p. a. thereafter. The guaranteed minimum power output after 25 years is 83%.
The rear surfaces of Q Cells Q.ANTUM solar cells are treated with a nano aluminium coating that functions much like a mirror. Sunlight that would otherwise go to waste is reflected back through the cell to generate more electricity. Laser-fired contacts complement the nano coating to enhance the module’s electrical properties, increasing its efficiency considerably.
