SunPower - Unmatched Performance, Reliability and Aesthetics
SunPower is the World's best solar panel. That's not just marketing talk. These are built and perform better than any other panel on the market.
With up to 360 Watts in same the space as a standard 275 Watt panel, SunPower panels are ideal for when space is at a premium. We don't just mean for small roofs, but for roofs restricted by shade and for maximising solar capacity with a vision for the future (think batteries, electric vehicles). You'll need all the power you can get!
Per square meter, SunPower panels produce up to 30% more power and 55% more energy over 25 years than a standard 275W panel.
Thanks to their unique construction, there are no lines on the front of the cells like normal panels. All the contacts are on the back out of sight. Combined with the quality black frames, this creates a crisp, premium aesthetic.
Highest Energy Production
Per rated watt, SunPower panels deliver 8-10% more energy in year-one. This advantage increases over time, producing 21% more energy over the first 25 years to meet your needs.
Designed for Durability
The SunPower Maxeon Solar Cell is the only cell built on a solid copper foundation. Virtually impervious to the corrosion and cracking that degrade conventional panels. SunPower panels rank #1 in Fraunhofer durability test. 100% power maintained in Atlas 25+ comprehensive durability test.

The Best Combined Power and Product Warranty
SunPower is proud to offer the industry’s best combined power and product warranty. The product and performance are both completely covered under warranty for 25 years. The typical industry product warranty is just 10 years!
SunPower guarantees the panels are still performing at 92% of their rating after 25 years. Most panels are only offering about 80%. SunPower panels are so well built, you can expect them to last 40 years.
SunPower warranty doesn't just cover the panel. It covers the removal of the old panel, shipping, flash testing and the new panel installation.
A world leader in solar technology, Fronius is one of Australia’s most popular and highly regarded solar inverter manufacturers. Founded in Austria in 1945, they have over 65 years experience producing innovative and intelligent power storage solutions. Originally a manufacturer of battery chargers, transformers and welding equipment, they’ve spent the last 20 years developing and manufacturing solar inverters and monitoring equipment, including solar battery chargers.
A benchmark in the industry
Fronius inverters have become a benchmark in the field, with the Galvo and Symo inverters receiving the 2013 Plus X Award for High Quality, Functionality and Ecology. The Galvo inverter was also named the best product of the year for 2013. Earlier awards include an Austrian prize for innovation for the Sunrise solar inverter in 1997, and the Solarix standalone sine-wave inverter in 1991. Their IG inverter range won the Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award in 2008, and is only just being phased out after 15 years in the field.
Recognising Australia’s long term solar potential, a Fronius Australia subsidiary was established in Melbourne in 2010. With a local warehouse, technical support and repair centre, it serves as a regional hub for both Australia and New Zealand. Providing distribution, service and technical support, it ensures consumers have in-country support whenever they need it.
All Fronius inverters are:
Certified by the Clean Energy Council (CEC) of Australia and are on the list of CEC approved inverters
Manufactured in Austria
Supported by a 5 + 5 year manufacturers warranty.
Smart monitoring to make the most of your home or business energy
Produce more, use less, save money
Solar Analytics Monitoring measures your data in real-time: solar generation, energy use, system performance and cost savings. Get access to all your energy stats anywhere, on any device to get the most value from your system.
Ready for the new energy future
The energy world is rapidly changing and the opportunities are enormous. Solar Analytics gives you the data to navigate the new energy landscape, including getting ready for battery storage, energy trading and independence.
See the results
The Solar Analytics dashboard provides a personalised and comprehensive analysis of your solar power system's performance. Easy to use and hosted in the cloud, access your dashboard at any time from your computer, tablet or smartphone.
With your Smart Monitor connected you can now log in to the Dashboard and time from your desktop computer, tablet or smart phone to see:
Your solar energy system's performance
Your energy usage
Net electricity bought and sold
When and how you're loading your system
How much energy your system should be generating vs actual energy generation any given day
Alerts and faults diagnostics.
With up to 51.8% of solar panels not performing to capacity across the industry, you need to know exactly when there is an issue. The Solar Smart Monitor is the only way that you can get live data for your solar energy system - the Dashboard data is updated every five seconds and displayed in real time.
Any faults, failures or under-performance are detected and diagnosed almost instantly! You can save hundreds of dollars (or thousands for businesses!) by catching issues as soon as they crop up - no more waiting for your bill to arrive to realise there is a problem.
On top of fault notifications, you can finally get the most up-to-date information on your solar energy system, anytime, anywhere. See your energy consumption as it happens and catch huge spikes. You can also see the impact of weather, shading, faults, and breakages on your solar performance, so you can improve your system's efficiency.

The RESU Battery
The compact and lightweight nature of the RESU is world-class. It is designed to allow easy wall-mounted or floor-standing installation for both indoor and outdoor applications.
The new RESU series features industry-leading continuous power (up to 5kW) and DC round-trip efficiency (95%). LG Chem’s lamination & stacking technology provides durability ensuring 80% of capacity retention after 10 years.
LG Chem places the highest priority on safety and utilizes the same technology for its energy storage system products that has a proven safety record in its automotive battery. All products are fully certified in relevant global standards.
The RESU is designed to tie in with a grid connect solar system to increase self-consumption and savings. An compatible inverter is also required which is normally part of your solar system but can be added on separately.
This battery is big enough to offset the late afternoon/evening energy use of an big Aussie household. It may even cover evening and early morning electricity needs.

Enphase AC Battery
The Enphase Concept
Enphase has taken their modular concept to energy storage. Multiple smaller battery units gives home owners the ability to add small blocks, one at a time, meaning you can scale up much more easily. Since each battery is integrated with its own micro-inverter, you don’t have to worry about improved technology or older degraded batteries mixing with new ones.
A very smart battery
The AC Battery from Enphase is a very advanced unit. The Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO 4) cells manufactured in Japan offer more cycles, longer life span and safer operation. The Enphase AC Battery comes in smaller 1.2 kWh units and with their own inverter, enabling you to add them very easily. They’re also much lighter and far more easy to install than most batteries available today. Having 10,000 cycles also enables the AC Battery to be comfortably used twice per day, which essentially doubles the effectiveness of the storage.
