    Do you have a offer for without the battery

  •  

    Do u have an offer for nsw?

    Friend has an existing old, 1.5kw system, still on 71c FIT. Will installing a new system like this one, start a new FIT which I believe is currently only 11c?

    •  

      As your friend is on a 71c FiT I would recommend not adding A battery or additional solar to it unless they are in need of more power, or backup power in the event of blackouts, or their 71c is due to end soon.

    Are these deals just as bad as the previous one posted?

      Absolute rubbish. 7 year warranty on a battery that will start losing lifespan around the same time.

      •  

        We are currently exploring options to offer extended warranties beyond 7yrs for added peace of mind

    As solar quotes site states, battery is not economic at the moment.

    • +2 votes

      Sure, if economics is the sole motivation. We are finding that most early adopters of batteries are investing for a number of reasons, namely; environmental impact, uninterrupted power supply in the event of blackouts, energy security and those that have higher than average bills say above $500/qtr.

    Not sure this really meets the intent of "a deal" on Ozb.
    More just a marketing activity.
    But, having checked the rules out, hmm actually I think I'll leave it to MAB

    What a load of rubbish. Current pricing for a 6.6kw system without batteries is around $5,000 depending on inverter. If it is cheap Chinese crap with no real brand recognition and limited manufacturing timespan you pay less than a Fronius Austrian made inverter. Same with panels, no name VS LG etc.

    Then take the VIC Solar Homes rebate off (if you qualify) and you end up around $2500-3000 out of pocket.Again if you qualify $2225 can be then interest free loaned from the Vic Government. Out of pocket up front costs are around $1,000 - $2,000.

    This deal leaves you almost $9,000 worse off for a battery with a 7 year warranty, and a lifespan of around 10 years until it needs to be binned and disposed of. Goodbye savings, goodbye environmental savings.

    Considering a 5kw inverter with 6.6kw of panels should generate around 20-24 kw/h average a day, this should offset most average families electricity bills, with high feed ins during summer offsetting cooler winter months.

    After spending all week getting hounded by solar companies these deals are all designed to rip the average punter off.

      What's the lowest current pricing for 5.5kw lg panels + Fronius inverters (that you know of)? Trying to get a few quotes at the moment and it's quite expensive. :(

      •  

        Haven't got one for that combo. Its the shadiest of industries. All selling the same shit, marked up, ready to take your cash and fold the business the moment they can to avoid warranties. Bradford Solar quoted out of control pricing - they are owned by CSR. United Energy gave me a price of $4k after rebates for Fronius. Everyone is apparently th best, and every Chinese brand is the best. Phoenix company is such a good term for solar companies.

        Careful of fanciful claims of how much these systems will generate a day. I recently saw a few houses around me go up with solar on the south side of their house. Im pretty confident their expert solar installers wouldn't have told them that it will be next to useless there.

        https://www.ozbargain.com.au/user/156607 @Himesama21 we don't offer LG panels, however we do 320w & 360w Sunpower Panels that come with a combined 25 Year Product & 25 Year Performance Warranty.

    I know a lot of phoenix businesses closed and re-opened after the last round of rebates years ago. Seems like the business has moved into the SOLAR when rebates were on, then into the LED area when the rebates are on and back again.

  •  

    Also for those that are after the rebate for Victoria, the rebate numbers per month is capped (I think 2500 per month). Of which July's max rebate were reached in the first week of the month, so be mindful that might be a number of months before you get that rebate. With a backlog, I've read, of 10k.

    •  

      Yes you are right around 3,333 per month that re-opens again on the 1st August until filled and again from the 1st of September and so on. It’s a bit of an unusual method that the Victorian Goverment have chosen to adopt. For re-assurance any deposits paid are fully refundable if you find you are ineligible or denied the Vic Rebate.

    •  

      I'm so glad I booked in earlier in the year. The rebate process is so hard now!

      •  

        Although you get the rebate now if you win the rebate lottery straight away with the 4 year loan.
        Where those on the last rebate we waited 3-6 months for the money with Vic Solar stuffing things up constantly and loosing things.
        So snakes and ladders..
        10k quotes in the system is the story so do not expect to win rebate lotto for a few months at 3333 a month
        Be interesting how many solar places go under now the new rebate stuffing things up..

    5 years installation warranty

    That's some pretty weak warranty on your workmanship. No faith in your installers huh?

    •  

      You can pay premium for them to upgrade the warranty to 10 years. ;)

      • +1 vote

        a lot of places with 10 years Phoenix anyway. Lots of solar companies called something else a few months earlier

    •  

      Hi @incipient, 5 Year Installation & Workmanship Warranty is pretty standard across the industry. As we are an Approved Solar Retailer the code states that we need to offer "a standard minimum warranty period of five years on your whole system" We do offer, as many companies do, extended warranties of up to 10 Years on Installation & Workmanship.

      We have the utmost faith in our installers who are Clean Energy Council Accredited Installers.

  •  

    It seems the warranty is from the installer and manufacturers / distributors (panel / inverter / battery). If they close, the warranty most likely will be useless, right?

    •  

      That's a trend in this industry. I have read a lot abt it. I think it's better to talk to your home insurer and pay extra to them instead of relying on installer/manufacturers warranty.

      •  

        @Sam816 I agree with you that you should speak to your home insurer to weigh up the added premium costs to add your solar system to your policy, this gives added peace of mind on top of the manufacturer and our installation & workmanship warranty.

    •  

      Hi @butasan, you are right. We provide our eko energy installation & workmanship warranty of 5 Years (extendable to 10 Years), plus you get the Panel & Inverter Warranties that are Australian Warranties. If we close or the panel & inverter manufacturer closes the warranty is useless. However, that is why we only use companies with a strong balance sheet that have longevity in the industry. This is classified as a Bloomberg Finance rating of Tier 1. Secondly, 49% of our company is owned by the electricity retailer EnergyAustralia which provides further credibility and bankable Australian Warranties for you to provide you with added peace of mind.

    The warranty doesn't cover products installed in Australia, only a list of certain other countries.
    https://www.q-cells.com/dam/jcr:e14a7d8e-0ff7-45e1-9ec6-eac6...
    Also, in the event of a warranty claim"The Customer is responsible for shipping the Q CELLS Modules to HQC for evaluation at the Customer’s expense"
    -I wonder what the cost of shipping your solar panels back to Korea is?!

    Even big car companies only covers up to 5 years except Kia . I wonder what is the warranty on electric car batteries .

      Tesla model 3 - 8 years or 160,000 km, whichever comes first, with minimum 70% retention of Battery capacity over the warranty period.
