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

I had 5 quotes from various installers in my area but decided to go with Expert Electrical because they provided a balanced quality vs cost system. The sales rep was very helpful answering lots of questions as I worked through the minefield of the solar industry. Expert electrical were established and had electrical license which was important to me.The customer service was great actually as they worked with me during their busiest time of the year to overcome some obstacles for the installation. They were able to help me resolve these issues including some upgrades to the electrical supply and still prioritise my installation. They also had some loan options.And on the day, even though the installation went longer than expected, they stayed on late into the evening to ensure it was installed.Much appreciated for the job well done.

Expert Electrical were nothing short of professional, efficient, friendly and cannot recommend enough. We first engaged the company from Sydney where we were currently living and Shannon made the process so streamlined that everything went smoothly. Although we didn't meet Caleb and his team as the job was completed ahead of schedule and even connected to the grid. We are more than happy with the installation and finished product. Thanks Team!

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.
