Warning: A solar system is not a plug and play appliance!

Selecting the right solar system for your home isn’t as simple as matching a panel with an inverter or matching a generic “budget or premium” package with your budget. Sadly, most retailers would like you to believe this fairy-tale.

A solar system is not a plug and play appliance! Each core component can affect the performance and the system’s lifespan. A system can be broken down into three components: Module, Inverter and Balance of System (BOS) as well as two delivery mechanisms: the retailer and the installer. All of these factors need to be selected carefully to ensure you get the right system for your energy needs, your budget and your home.

Definition “Quality” In this industry the word “Quality” is misused and subjectively represented. Through our PV Testing we have met many clients who thought they purchased a quality system. Unfortunately, they had fallen victim to a marketing pitch from retailers who buy products at the cheapest price that they can bundle up. Another trend we are seeing retailers do is endorsing products on the country of origin or manufacture with the hope that the perceived reputation will be enough to fool the unaware into believing the product is of quality.

TIP: Be mindful when a retailer is marketing a system on cheap pricing or weekly payments without declaring the make, model, country of origin and manufacturer of the panels and inverter. Caution…8 x 190 watt panels with a 3kW inverter - this is not a good enough description and should send ALARM bells ringing!

Take a look at our PV Testing page case studies or visit the Clean Energy Regulators (CER) website. These people also sadly thought they were buying quality. Recent testing of 3012 installed PV solar systems carried out across Australia by the Clean Energy Regulator (CER) produced some interesting results:

TIP: If you are investing in a solar system the key performance measure is kWh out for kW installed. Don’t be fooled by the efficiency rating on a panel as this relates to the highest efficiency per surface area in real world conditions. This is only useful to know if you have limited space.

A 30 North expert consultant will visit you in your home and undertake a full analysis of your energy needs, your home and full site evaluation using state of the art equipment to ensure there are no expensive surprises on the day of install. We look at the correlation between your energy needs now and in the future, your budget, your home and the best of available technology to accurately tailor a system and quotation for you with no hidden extras.

NOTE: There are real savings to be made with solar. The average family in Queensland will spend between fifty five thousand to sixty five thousand dollars on electricity over the next 25 years. Electricity prices will rise every year, we believe the rise will be between 5% - 8%.


With or without rebates and the FIT solar is a win-win either way! For every kW/h your home consumes from your system, you save the amount equal to the fee you are charged per kW/h by your energy retailer. If your consumption is lower you feed the balance to the grid and you get paid the FIT for anything you export with the added benefit of doing your part to reduce carbon (CO2) emissions.
