Lightweight solar panels

We specialise in premium quality lightweight solar panels

Our range utilises the best quality cells and encapsulation plus we offer extensive engineering advice and support before, during and after your purchase.  We conduct significant research, testing and field trials to ensure the information we provide is accurate and appropriate.

We deliver to businesses and the public throughout Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

 

All solar panels in our range have:

  • sealed junction boxes to prevent corrosion from moisture;
  • two bypass diodes;
  • Electrical testing i.e. voltage and current, plus Electroluminescence (EL) testing during production.  The electrical test confirms the current and voltage are within production limits while the EL test confirms that the cells are free of defects and are well matched.  If present these result in a lower panel output and possibly a shortened lifespan;
