We have been looking at trends in solar panel system prices in November 2011. The Australian dollar is very strong meaning the cost of solar panels , be it from China , Japan or Germany are coming into Brisbane (and Australia) at very good prices .The same applies to solar inverters.The solar power Brisbane site believes that prices are unlikely to go down very much further in the next 6 months or so. The exchange rate is a major factor as is global demand for solar power.
Solar Power Brisbane – Latest Prices on Offer
Solar Panel systems in Brisbane are generally sold in ’3 tiers’ of pricing . The three tiers relate to the quality of the solar components (meaning the solar panels and solar inverter) . Obviously different Brisbane solar companies operate at different profit margins but in the very competitive Brisbane solar power market , solar companies have to be competitive to remain in business. So it is quite possible to see , say a 1.5KW solar power system being offered in Brisbane for $1500 and another for $4000 . The difference generally is that the low end systems use ‘no name’ Chinese made solar panels and solar inverters , whereas the ‘high end’ systems may be using premium brand solar panels like Conergy , Sharp or SunPower for example , possibly with an SMA , German made inverter. To bearing all this in mind , here are some current Brisbane Solar Panels systems on offer currently.
1.5KW Solar Systems: Low end $1,200 High End $3,990
2KW Solar Systems: Low end $3,200 High End $7,000
3KW Solar Systems: Low end $6,200 High End $11,800
5KW Solar Systems: Low end $11,200 High End $17,800
As you can see , the price variations can be huge. Its a case of buyer beware! We strongly recommend going with quality solar panels and inverters – your Brisbane solar power system should last 20+ years , so buying possibly unreliable solar panels and inverters without a strong local distributor to support the products should something go wrong , could well be a false economy!
