Save with solar panels

Thanks to government rebates, high quality solar power is now less expensive than you’d think. But rebates are phasing out, which is why the earlier you take advantage, the more you’ll save.

You want to make sure that your system is a sound investment, not an install-and-run. Depending on the quality of the system, your solar panels could last you 5 years or 25 years.

Inverters, panels, wattage, warranties...there’s a lot to think about.

  • Rebates: the early bird catches the worm
  • Trusted Tier 1 brands give you peace of mind for decades
  • Immunity from energy price hikes

Find your perfect system, and work out your savings

Solar Panels

We only use what we'd recommend to our grandmothers

You want a guarantee that each panel is well-designed and thoughtfully engineered. Plus, they must tolerate our Queensland hailstorms and salty coastal air. The brands we select come with excellent warranties. Useful accessories like smart monitoring apps to give you more control over your household energy consumption. You’re also guaranteed that the panels will keep producing high energy outputs as they age, even after as long as 30 years.

Our Favourite Solar Panels

A Tried and Tested Brand

The difference between a reputable, quality panel and low-cost panels lies in the details. Monocrystalline cells have a higher output efficiency than polycrystalline. Double glass panes are more weather-resistant and reliable. Tempered glass gives more protection against cracks. Award-winning brand, SolarWatt, ticks all these boxes.

Vision M Series

  • German engineering from SolarWatt
  • 30-year warranty for both product and performance
  • Guaranteed to maintain 87% output for 30 years
  • Specialised glass layers prevent cracks and hot spots
  • Salt and hail resistant

Our Other Favourites

Hyundai Solar Panels

  • One of the most trusted brands globally
  • Monocrystalline cells
  • Weather resistant with tempered glass and reinforced frame
  • Proven cell efficiency of 17-19% (that’s high)
  • Low operating temperature (so it loses less power)
  • 25 year warranty

Seraphim Solar Panels

  • 10-year guarantee on product and workmanship
  • 25-year warranty on power output
  • Proven reliability through hail stones, sand, pH changes, and wind load
  • Dense monocrystalline and polycrystalline cell combination
  • Proven cell efficiency of up to 22.3% (that’s really good)
  • Anti-reflective coating allows more sunlight to be captured
  • Hotspot prevention leading to improved yield over the lifespan

After researching for many hours, then getting a few quotes, we finally decided on Expert Electrical Pty Ltd. Glad we did. They promised and then delivered everything they promised. That's a bit unusual. We went for 10 kw on the roof and already we are saving heaps. Morris and the guys were efficient. It only took 1.5 days to complete from start to finish. Ben and Zac who quoted us at the start were very thorough and explained everything clearly. Answered all our questions because we were pretty green. I'd recommend save yourself some money and stress by using Expert because they know Solar installations inside out. Thank you Ben Zac Morris and the great support from Courtney and Martina at the office.

Gold Medal performance to Expert Electrical!Big thanks to Dave for the understanding of our requirements and expert explanation of our queries and not pushing into a particular system. To Morris and Team Tasmania for the hassle free install and setup on the day. I could see that they took the time to do it right and even had time to pat the dog. We received a follow up call in the days after to answer any further questions and to check on satisfaction of the system and the whole process. Everyone at Expert Electrical has been polite and professional to deal with. Highly recommend to anyone and would be more than happy to go back for more.

I was very happy with all aspects of the service provided by Expert Electrical. Dave provided heaps of useful information when he visited to do the quote. The installation happened a couple of weeks later and I was very pleased with the quality of the workmanship provided by Caleb and the team especially the neatness of the wiring. All aspects of the grid connect went smoothly and I really appreciated the follow-up phone call from Paul.

I would without hesitation recommend Expert Electrical to anyone.Expert Electrical were the easiest company to talk to about Solar. After the Halloween Storm in 2020 we found them at the Home Show in Brisbane, within the week they were out and completed their inspection and went through our options and we had the quote that afternoon. As our roof had not been replaced to date they patiently waited and contacted us regularly following up on the dates. Once the dates were confirmed the boys were out a few days after the roof was completed and completed the install within a few hours. They even found a few issues from the last installers and fixed them there and then, the boys were very polite and extremely helpful. They explained how the system works, the app and when Head Office would contact us with our details to log in. Before the days out we had all of our details confirmed by email and the app up and running.We will definitely be returning to them for any upcoming work that may be required in the future. Sensational.

We had reviewed a number of different providers before choosing Expert Electrical as our Solar provider/installer. They proposed a well established system at a price well below their competitors. There was a slight delay in our install which they informed us of well in advance and we were able to arrange an alternate date. We were unable to be present for the installation, but the team at Expert Electrical did a beautiful job on the installation. The whole process went by very smoothly, I would definitely recommend Expert Electrical to anyone looking for a solar system.

From the very beginning Expert Electrical were more than happy to spend the time to listen to our requirements & questions and then clearly explain our options. We upgraded from a single phase 6kw system to a three phase 18kw system with German panels & inverter. They were incredibly flexible with our installation due to circumstances beyond our control (much appreciated). Nothing was too much trouble and there was no pressure. All of the crew we dealt with from the initial quoting right through to the installation, connection, final testing and app set up were prompt, polite, happy to answer all our questions and so clean & tidy. And to top it off, the system is now outperforming our expectations. Our neighbours were so amazed with what they saw, they also went with Expert Electrical. Many thanks to Ben, Chris & the whole team. Highly recommended.

Couldn't be happier with the whole process, from the initial enquiry through to installation. Very happy with the solar system, it's a tricky roof configuration and they took the time to ensure the I maximised roof space in combination with maximum performance.

From our first meeting with Ben through to installation, we were so impressed with the professionalism that Expert Electrical offer. 100% you get what you pay for and this was obvious after getting quotes from a couple of the cheaper companies. We felt the price was reasonable for the quality of product we got, the warranty and the experience of the guys installing on the day. Once we paid our deposit, we were contacted first thing the next day to organise installation so everything on the admin side ran very smoothly as well. We did have one problem on the day however this was rectified immediately so we were very happy with the service we received. We would definitely recommend them to anyone having solar installed or for any electrical work you need done, we will definitely use them again in the future. Thanks again 😊

How does solar work?

Solar panels use the sunlight to create DC power and your inverter converts the DC power into AC electricity to be used within the home. This energy can be used in the home during the day, exported to the grid (if unused) or stored into a battery or electric vehicle.

This depends on your overall household usage and the available space on your roof. Also, whether you install batteries or have an electric vehicle available to store any surplus energy. Most homes use more power at night than during the day (typically, 30% energy is used during the day and 70% during the night).

A typical household with a bill of $500 per quarter would need approximately a 6-8kW solar system to eliminate the bill. As your quarterly energy bills increase you will need to increase the size of your solar system.

The best products to suit your individual needs depends on the following factors:

  • the calibre/quality of the homes in your area
  • the quality of your home/rental property
  • the intended long term use of the home (i.e. rental property vs living in the home for 10+ years)
  • your personal expectation in regards to quality vs price

The only solar system that will continue to provide secure and reliable electricity are those that include battery storage or a bi-directional EV battery.

A rule of thumb is that you will save approximately $65 per quarter for every kW of solar (example: a customer with a $650 quarterly bill would require approximately 10kW of solar to eliminate their bill).

Most new home buyers are expecting solar to be included in their new home. People are now demanding this as a standard feature when once it was considered a luxury.

Home buyers are now becoming very aware of the benefits of running their modern appliances without the shock of the expense. This interest in the market will definitely increase the demand for your property and accordingly the value.

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Total number of installations
  • Will my system be designed and installed by a CEC qualified designer and installer
  • Ask for their Electrical contractors licence number and CEC approved retailer accreditation
  • Where is the head office? Do they have an established business footprint
  • Do they have good online reviews? If not, why?
  • How long are the warranties and the workmanship guarantee?
  • What is the quality of panels, inverters and batteries that you install?
  • Can I come and see you at your office and can you show me the products you recommend?
  • Do you offer cleaning, service and maintenance?
  • Do you offer other products and services such as batteries, electric vehicle charging, off grid, automation, general electrical and air conditioning.

At Expert Electrical we have studied this area extensively and so have our main inverter partner SMA. We have discovered that shading less than 50% on the roof won’t typically require any shade products (i.e. optimisers and micro inverters).

A reputable solar business will take into account shading when calculating your estimated savings from your solar system. If you do have greater than 50% shading then we will discuss optimers or micro inverter products with you to ensure maximum performance from your highly shaded roof.

However, if you choose our preferred German SMA inverter you will automatically receive the in-built software called ‘Shadefix’ that will yield the best results from your shaded panels. Buyer beware of the cheap inferior products in this space!

Pigeons and Possums can become quite a nuisance in ensuring the maintenance and longevity of your solar system. Pigeons and Possums often nest under your panels and play havoc with your wiring and can create overheating issues. Not to mention the mess they often leave under and on the panels!

We can recommend bird proofing options at the time of installation or if it becomes an issue after installation we can clean/service and install the mesh to prevent the situation continuing to occur.

We're More Than Just Solar

Are we claiming too much? We don’t think so. As both accredited electricians and solar specialists, we don’t like the cookie cutter approach. Instead, we partner with you to understand the big electrical picture of your property before any recommendation or installation. That’s what makes us especially good at the non-standard situations. And while we’re talking solar, we can help with any other electrical issue too.

All-inclusive Solar Systems

Renewable energy is the way of the future. Don’t settle for a cheap system that will only last 5 years, when a good quality system, made affordable through rebates, could last you 25 years. Speak to us about asking the right questions before you install solar.

General Electrical

Lights, fans, power upgrades and more. No need to look any further for household electrical services. That includes hooking up your solar system to a switchboard. Use our one-stop shop advantage.

Air Conditioning

Queensland summers—sticky, huh? Stay cool and comfortable with the perfect air con for your home. Whether it's a split system or the more powerful ducted vents, we'll help you weigh the pros and cons to make the best decision.
